Warren Adler’s Grey Eagle Films has tapped Hernany Perla to adapt Adler’s upcoming thriller “Torture Man” as a movie.

Perla’s credits include the Blacklist script “Blink,” set up with Atlas Independent, along with “Revelations” at Lotus Entertainment. Adler is best known for writing the novel “The War of the Roses,” which was adapted into a 1989 movie starring Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito.

“Torture Man” follows a former CIA operative and a prominent anti-war activist whose 11-year-old daughter is kidnapped by Islamist terrorists for a $10 million ransom.

Other Grey Eagle projects include “The War of the Roses: The Children,” co-developed by Permut Presentations; “Target Churchill,” co-developed by Solution Entertainment Group; “Mourning Glory,” to be adapted by Karen Leigh Hopkins; and “Cult,” to be adapted by Alex McAulay.

Perla is represented by Original Artists, Ryan Cunningham at Madhouse Entertainment and attorney Eric Brooks.
