Private (The Web Series) by Kate Brian

Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures has attached Ron Howard to direct an adaptation of Robert Ludlum's 1982 espionage thriller The Parsifal Mosaic. David Self (Road to Perdition) will adapt the novel.

Book synopsis: Michael Havelock's world died on a moonlit beach on the Costa Brava. He watched as his partner and lover, Jenna Karats, double agent, was efficiently gunned down by his own agency. There was nothing left for him but to quit the game, get out. Until, in one frantic moment on a crowded railroad platform in Rome, Havelock saw his Jenna alive. From then on, he was marked for death by both U.S. and Russian assassins, racing around the globe after his beautiful betrayer, trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level mole with the world in his fist -- Parsifal.

Universal has two other Ludlum projects underway. A fourth "Bourne" film is in development as is an adaptation of the author's 2001 thriller The Sigma Protocol.
