New Line adapting ‘Thirteenth Hour’

Michael Brandt, Derek Haas to write thriller

Michael Brandt and Derek Haas have signed on to adapt upcoming Richard Doetsch novel “The Thirteenth Hour” for New Line Cinema and producer Michael De Luca.

New Line acquired the book last fall. Story follows a man accused of murdering his wife who gets to go back in time — in one-hour increments over 12 hours — with the chance to stop his wife’s killer.

Haas said the book “is a fast-paced thriller with a supernatural twist and characters who really pop.”

The novel will be published by Atria.

Alissa Phillips will be executive producer.

The writing team of Brandt and Haas (“Wanted,” “3:10 to Yuma”) most recently adapted Robert Ludlum thriller “The Matarese Circle.” The MGM film, to be directed by David Cronenberg, is shaping up as a potential pairing of Denzel Washington and Tom Cruise. The scribes are also scripting a new installment of “Beverly Hills Cop” for Eddie Murphy and director Brett Ratner at Paramount.

With producer Rachael Horovitz, De Luca is prepping “Moneyball,” the Steve Zaillian-scripted adaptation of the Michael Lewis book for Columbia Pictures that will team Brad Pitt and director Steven Soderbergh.
