Arash Amel has been hired to adapt the UNTITLED MARIE COLVIN BIOPIC for Thunder Roads Pictures. The project is based on the Vanity Fair article “Marie Colvin’s Private War” written by Marie Brenner. It follows the life of Marie Colvin, the acclaimed journalist who specialized in the conflicts in the Middle East and was ultimately killed in action during the Syrian conflict.
Producing will be Basil Iwanyk, Charlize Theron (eyed to star), AJ Dix and Beth Kono.
Amel wrote the delayed thriller “Erased” and the “Grace of Monaco”. He is also currently attached to pen “I Am Legend 2” because Will Smith is out of control.
He is repped by CAA.
