Sony to Adapt Michael Dobbs' Thriller The Lords' Day

The Lords' Day by Michael Dobbs

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sony is adapting the Michael Dobbs 2007 thriller The Lords' Day as the first in a "franchise character-based film" series. Robert Mark Karman (Taken) will write the screenplay.

Book synopsis: Once a year, the Queen, the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the judges, the bishops, leaders spiritual and temporal, assemble in the House of Lords for the State Opening of Parliament. On this day, the Lords' Day, the gathering is still more impressive, for sitting beside his mother is the heir to the throne and up in the galleries are the sons of both the US President and the British Prime Minister. But they are all about to be taken hostage. The siege will lead some to selfless sacrifice, others to lose the respect of those they love most dearly.

The Lords' Day is the first in a series of thrillers by the author featuring Harry Jones, an ex-SAS Member of Parliament. The second, The Edge of Madness, was published last year. Both books are available as UK imports in the US.
