Warner Bros. picks up rights to Morrell's book
David Morrell who wrote the book that became First Blood back in 1982 has had his next novel, "The Brotherhood of the Rose", picked up by Warner Bros. The story centers on two orphans raised by a CIA operative to be assassins, only to become targets themselves.
We hear it from Variety that it had previously been made as a two-parter espionage drama for NBC in the late eighties, five years after the novel was originally published. Sounds all too familiar as far as plots go, I guess interest will get peaked as the project gets some huge director & stars attached. With Warner Bros. taking it I'm sure we can count on that. Who would you like to see take the helms?
