Noyce to direct ‘Wenceslas Square’

Endgame is fast-tracking scribe Phillips' spy thriller

Phillip Noyce will direct spy thriller “Wenceslas Square” for “This American Life” producers Ira Glass and Alissa Shipp, and Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern.

Endgame is fast-tracking the project toward production.

Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely — who teamed on “Captain America” and co-wrote the first two “Chronicles of Narnia” films — adapted “Wenceslas,” based on the short story by Arthur Phillips. Endgame’s Doug Hansen will exec produce.

“Wenceslas” is set in Prague during the late Cold War era. It revolves around a young CIA officer and a beautiful Czech spy.

Noyce called the project “a gripping story about two young spies intoxicated by the espionage game and their passion for each other.”

Noyce at present is completing post-production on “Salt,” starring Angelina Jolie, with Sony planning a July 23 release.

Glass, Shipp and Stern announced plans to produce “Wenceslas” a year ago (Daily Variety, March 12, 2009).

Phillips’ short story was featured on Glass’ public radio program in 2008 and was originally published in “Wild East: Stories From the Last Frontier.”

Endgame’s in post-production on “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps,” directed by Roger Donaldson and starring Nicolas Cage. The shingle’s recent titles include “An Education” and “Every Little Step.”

Noyce is repped by UTA and Cameron Creswell. Glass, Shipp, Markus and McFeely are also repped by UTA.
