Frances Lawrence is set to direct. Jennifer has worked with Frances on The Hunger Games.
Variety reports that “the book is set in modern-day Russia in the intelligence bureaucracy with a young woman drafted against her will to become a ‘sparrow,’ a trained seductress assigned to operate against a first-tour CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers fall into a spiral of attraction and deception that results in her leading life as a double agent.”
The film will hit theaters on November 10, 2017.
