Pajiba Exclusive: Eric Bana the Leading Contender to Play Ex-SAS Bad-Ass Nick Stone


Back in March of this year, Variety announced that Hyde Park Entertainment had picked up the rights to Andy McNab’s 12-novel espionage series based around the character Nick Stone. According to the Hollywood Cog, Eric Bana is poised to play that character in a potential espionage series.

The script comes from John Connor, who is also a producer on the project, which is being co-produced by Imagenation Abu Dhabi. The first film in the series will be an adaptation of Firewall, which is being turned into a movie called Echelon. It will follow the ex-SAS hardnut as he attempts to prevent a terrorist organization from accessing the world’s largest computer intelligence database.

The story is too old to be commented.
