Paramount Pictures closed a deal Tuesday for screenwriter and bestselling author Lucian K. Truscott IV’s “Code of Honor,” which is earmarked for director Jonathan Kaplan and producer Henry Ufland.
Joel Gotler of Renaissance, the agency that handles Truscott, said only that the original military-themed drama went for six figures.
“Code of Honor” is one of three feature film scripts that Trescott, 46, has been commissioned this year to write. In addition, he is working on an original movie for HBO as well as his fourth novel. His 1979 bestseller “Dress Gray” was turned into an NBC miniseries.
Kaplan’s credits include “The Accused” and Ufland has produced “Not Without My Daughter” and “Last Temptation of Christ.”
Paramount executives could not be reached for comment.
