Brian Kirk In Talks For OSTERMAN WEEKEND Remake

Television director Brian Kirk is in talks with Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment to helm their new adaption of the Robert Ludlum spy thriller The Osterman Weekend. The Luther and Game Of Thrones helmer has been looking to break into features as of late. Last August he was close to signing on to direct Thor 2 before Marvel Studio decided to go with Patty Jenkins.

Kirk has also been developing a potential Tom Cruise film called Paper Wings for Sony and Midnight Delivery with producer Guillermo Del Toro at Universal.

Previously adapted in 1983 by the great Sam Peckinpah, this new version of Ludlum’s classic novel is being scripted by Simon Kinberg and Jesse Wigutow. There’s no word yet as to whether the studio wants to go with the script that they have or if Kirk will oversee revisions.
