Here are some great news for all The Partner novel fans out there.
We already knew that an adaptation of John Grisham‘s novel is coming but now we finally know who’s going to direct it!
John Lee Hancock, man behind The Blind Side project is now on board to helm the New Regency adaptation.
Just in case you’re not so familiar with Grisham’s novel, here’s an official description of the whole thing:
“They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered.
He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death.
When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm’s offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him.”
