Briefly: The Amazing Spider-Man director Marc Webb is something of a golden boy at Sony right now, as he’s set to continue with the Spidey franchise through at least the series’ third installment. But he’s casting his eye beyond that, and naturally looking for projects outside the superhero realm.
So Marc Webb is now attached to the movie adaptation of the upcoming spy thriller book Cold Comfort at Fox. The movie rights for the book were just sold to the studio. Cold Comfort, aka How to Catch a Russian Spy, is a memoir by an unnamed former spy, being co-written by Ellis Henican. The book is about “an American civilian turned self-taught spy, who worked with the FBI to bring down a Russian intelligence agent on American soil.” [Deadline]
