David Farr, the writer behind The Night Manager and 2011’s Hanna, is set to adapt the film for NBCUniversal International Studios, according to Deadline.
Farr co-wrote Hanna with Seth Lochhead for Universal. It was directed by Joe Wright, and starred Saoirse Ronan as Hanna, a girl raised in the wilds of northern Finland by her ex-CIA operative father (Eric Bana), who trains her as an assassin. She must use this training to find him, while evading Cate Blanchett, who is out to eliminate them both.
Farr also wrote the BBC/AMC adaption of John Le Carré’s The Night Manager, The Man With The Iron Heart, and McMafia, another BBC/AMC production. He is currently working on a BBC historical series, Troy: Fall of a City, about the Trojan War.
