Universal Eyes Dwayne Johnson for Robert Ludlum’s ‘The Janson Directive’

Dwayne Johnson is in early talks to star in Robert Ludlum’s “The Janson Directive” for Universal.

If a deal closes, Johnson will also produce with Universal currently out to writers to pen the script.

The book follows a former consular ops agent who, after leaving covert operations due to the high number of sanctioned serial killings, goes into business as private security consultant. Teamed with a sharpshooter, Janson only takes assignments that he believes will lead to helping those in need.

Sources say the studio views it as a Jason Bourne-esque franchise for Johnson and is high on it.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've never heard of this one. I guess they are looking for something new and exciting. New thriller dramas that haven't been done or have been but new names and all that.
