Adam Cozad to Adapt The Gray Man


New Regency Pictures has hired Adam Cozad to adapt Mark Greaney’s 2009 thriller novel “The Gray Man.” Production Company Shine Limited (“Merlin”) is producing.

The following is how the book is described by publisher Jove:

Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man—a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness.

Now, he is going to prove that for him, there’s no gray area between killing for a living—and killing to stay alive.

Cozad is also writing the script for the untitled Jack Ryan film at Paramount Pictures.
