Scripted by Simon Kinberg and Jesse Wigutow, “The Osterman Weekend” is classic Ludlum, mixing conspiracy, murder and a man on the run. On the eve of an annual weekend getaway with friends, John Tanner is visited by a reporter who tells him his friends aren’t who he thinks they are. When the reporter turns up dead, Tanner gets caught in downward spiral of doubt and paranoia and, ultimately, a desperate fight to stay alive long enough to figure out who he can trust and who’s out to kill him.
The Irish helmer is also developing “Paper Wings” at Sony as a potential Tom Cruise vehicle, as well as the Guillermo Del Toro-produced “Midnight Delivery” at Universal. He most recently directed the BBC miniseries “Great Expectations” and helmed several episodes of the Idris Elba series “Luther.”
