“Assassin” will be the first title developed. Amber’s Ileen Maisel and Lawrence Elman will produce, with Oceanview founders Robert & Patricia Gussin and Susan Greger exec producing.

Story centers on a female American doctor sailing solo whose boat is hijacked by an Israeli assassin.

Maisel, a former New Line exec who founded Amber with Elman, Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming, found “Assassin” eight months ago in Massachusetts while visiting a friend in Massachusetts and tracked down Gregor in a nearby town. ”

We hit it off immediately with Ileen, which I think bodes well for a successful partnership,” Robert Gussin told Daily Variety.

It’s the first sale of feature rights for five-year-old Oceanview, which was founded by the Gussins and Gregor — who are all former Johnson & Johnson execs.
