Paramount Pictures-based Lynda Obst Prods. has purchased novelist Robert Stone’s “Damascus Gate” for a six-figure sum.
Obst nabbed the New York Times bestseller and National Book Award nominee using money from her Paramount discretionary fund.
Stone also wrote “Flag for Sunrise,” “Children of Light,” “Outerbridge Reach,” the National Book Award-winning “Dog Soldiers” and “Hall of Mirrors.”
“Dog Soldiers” was adapted into the film “Who’ll Stop the Rain” and “Hall of Mirrors” became “WUSA.”
Stone is repped by Gotham-based book agent Donadio and Olson and Steve Fisher at APA.
