James Bond Screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade Penning New International Action Thriller

     August 17, 2010


James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade aren’t waiting for 007 to be freed from MGM’s financial purgatory.  Risky Business reports that the pair is moving forward with writing a new globe-trotting action film based on an idea from Michael Lieber and Walter Parks.  The film:

Takes place among the nomadic Taureg tribes of West Africa, an area rich with uranium that has become a focal point for both energy companies and terrorist states. An American anthropologist is thrust into this geopolitical mess when he must travel back to the Sahara to help a former research subject who has been accused of a terrorist attack.

Okay, so an anthropologist isn’t quite a highly-trained spy, but when the spy is unavailable you take what you can get.
