A cool assignment on the horizon?

It looks like I might be penning an adaptation of a Frederick Forsyth short novel. The producer wants me to take the assignment -- and I certainly will, but only if I feel I can do justice to the project. So, in the next couple of weeks I plan to reread the novel (which I read a few months ago) and determine whether or not I can successfully translate Mr. Forsyth's fine story into a marketable screenplay. Stay tuned for further developments!
