Indiana Jones writer Jeff Nathanson pens Houdini’s Action Adventure!

Indiana Jones writer Jeff Nathanson has been hired to script and direct an action-orientated Harry Houdini film.

Based on William Kalush and Larry Sloman’s 2006 book The Secret Life Of Houdini: The Making Of America’s First Superhero, the movie will suggest that the legendary escapologist was a spy for the British and advised Czar Nicholas II in pre-revolutionary Russia.


Nathanson previously directed 2004’s The Last Shot and worked on the screenplays for Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal.
