Brian Kirk Plans The Osterman Weekend


Brian Kirk is eyeing the director’s chair on the upcoming Summit Entertainment re-adaptation of Robert Ludlum’s The Osterman Weekend, Deadline reports.

Best known for directing three episodes in the first season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Kirk has also helmed episodes of “Dexter,” “Luther” and “Boardwalk Empire.”

Jesse Wigutow (It Runs in the Family) wrote the screenplay, based on Ludlum’s espionage thriller. The novel was previously adapted into a film by Sam Peckinpah (his final work) in 1983.
