Mideast heat wave

Ridley Scott, producer Donald De Line and novelist Scott Ignatius are teaming on a pair of thrillers set in the Middle East. Warner Bros. has acquired “Penetration,” a spy novel by Ignatius about a CIA operative’s attempt to track a high-ranking terrorist in Jordan. The novel will be produced by De Line Pictures and Scott Free as a potential directing vehicle for Scott. Meanwhile, Scott has agreed to helm “The Invisible World” for Paramount, based on a treatment by Ignatius that was scripted by Dana Stevens. That pic covers the abduction of a female journalist in Iraq.
