Zhang Yimou Targets Robert Ludlum's The Parsifal Mosaic

February 13, 2014


One time eyed to become source material for a Bourne franchise entry, Universal Pictures is now seeking to develop Robert Ludlum's The Parsifal Mosaic as its own feature film. Today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the studio is setting Zhang Yimou (Hero, Raise the Red Lantern) to direct.

First published in 1982, The Parsifal Mosaic is officially described as follows:

Michael Havelock’s world died on a moonlit beach on the Costa Brava as he watched his partner and lover, double agent Jenna Karas, efficiently gunned down by his own agency. There’s nothing left for him but to quit the game, get out. Then, in one frantic moment on a crowded railroad platform in Rome, Havelock sees Jenna. Racing around the globe in search of his beautiful betrayer, Havelock is now marked for death by both U.S. and Russian assassins, trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level mole with the world in his fist: Parsifal.

Zhang most recently directed The Flowers of War, starring Christian Bale.
