George Nolfi, whose credits as writer include The Sentinel and The Bourne Ultimatum, is attached to helm Fox 2000 drama One Midnight to Midnight.
Nolfi, who made his directorial debut with last year’s underrated The Adjustment Bureau, will rewrite and direct the in-development adaptation of Michael Dobbs’ novel One Minute to Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War.
One Minute to Midnight will centre on the Cuban Missile Crisis and, more specifically, the thirteen days which brought the world closer to the brink of nuclear war than it had ever been before – or since.
Robert S. Edwards was responsible for the previous draft, which Nolfi will retouch before entering into production.
Nolfi acted as script supervisor on the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starrer The Last Stand, due to be released next year.
