Paramount Pictures has acquired Dubai, a geopolitical drama script by new screenwriter Adam Cozad. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce, and Eric Bana will be executive producer.
The story centers on a young economist who is set up by Iranian operatives in Dubai. They use him in a plot to instigate the collapse of the U.S. economy; he’s forced to go on the run to prove his innocence.
At this point, Bana is only committed to be involved as producer.
