Doug Liman to Adapt Olen Steinhauer’s The Tourist

ON

Doug Liman is planning to direct a feature film adaptation of Olen Steinhauer’s The Tourist, Deadline reports. The book is the first in a three-part trilogy and is officially described as follows:

Milo Weaver used to be a “tourist” for the CIA—an undercover agent with no home, no identity—but he’s since retired from the field to become a middle-level manager at the CIA’s New York headquarters. He’s acquired a wife, a daughter, and a brownstone in Brooklyn, and he’s tried to leave his old life of secrets and lies behind.

But when the arrest of a long-sought-after assassin sets off an investigation into one of Milo’s oldest colleagues and exposes new layers of intrigue in his old cases, he has no choice but to go back undercover and find out who’s holding the strings once and for all.

Liman, best known for films like Go, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Bourne Identity, is also attached to the Warner Bros. Tom Cruise project All You Need is Kill.
