This article was corrected on August 15, 2000.

NEW YORK — Producer Robert Greenwald plans to take on the CIA.

Greenwald (“The Audrey Hepburn Story,” “Steal This Movie”) will exec produce and possibly direct “Irreparable Harm, a Firsthand Account of How One Agent Took on the Agency in an Epic Battle Over Free Speech,” which is being developed as a two-hour telepic for Starz!.

The Random House book by former CIA agent Frank Snepp revisits the landmark U.S. Supreme Court First Amendment decision prompted by Snepp’s 1977 book “Decent Interval.”

The CIA sued Snepp over the book, which chronicled the fall of Saigon, claiming that it had not given him clearance to write about his experience. “Irreparable Harm” tracks Snepp’s attempt to defend himself, with the help of a then-unknown attorney named Alan Dershowitz.

Ceneno-Rodriguez tapped

Ravel Ceneno-Rodriguez (“The Thirteenth Floor”) will pen the script, and Paige Orloff, Starz!’s VP of original movies, will oversee the project’s development.

Robert Greenwald Prods. is in production on “Blonde,” the four-hour CBS miniseries based on Joyce Carol Oates’ book about Marilyn Monroe and in pre-production on “Unforgettable: The Natalie Cole Story” for NBC.

Greenwald is casting for “My Dark Places,” a film that he will direct based on James Ellroy’s book.
