“Dark Knight” producer Charles Roven heads to ‘Damascus’

Dark Knight producer Charles Roven has been named to oversee an adaptation of Robert Stone’s novel Damascus Gate.

This political thriller centres on a journalist who uncovers a conspiracy to sabotage a historic peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis.

Roven, who will produce with Richard Suckle for Columbia, told The Hollywood Reporter that he expects the movie to be character-driven and a thriller.

Screenwriter Eric Warren Singer (The International) will pen adaptation of the novel.
