Universal Pictures gearing up another Ludlum novelÖ
THR reports that director Zhang Yimou (Hero, Raise the Red Lanter, The Flowers of War) is in talks to direct The Parsifal Mosaic for Universal Pictures. The film is based on the book by Robert Ludlum (creator of The Bourne Identity and the Jason Bourne character).
Below is an official synopsis for the book, which was originally published in 1982:
Michael Havelock's world died on a moonlit beach on the Costa Brava as he watched his partner and lover, double agent Jenna Karas, efficiently gunned down by his own agency. There's nothing left for him but to quit the game, get out. Then, in one frantic moment on a crowded railroad platform in Rome, Havelock sees Jenna. Racing around the globe in search of his beautiful betrayer, Havelock is now marked for death by both U.S. and Russian assassins, trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level mole with the world in his fist: Parsifal.
