Par, C/W join ‘Patriots’ act

Purchase follows 'Treasure' hunt

Making its second book deal within days, Paramount Pictures has optioned the Christopher Reich novel “The Patriots Club” for Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner’s C/W Prods.

Purchase follows the Par-C/W deal for Michael Stadther’s “A Treasure Trove” and marks the second book by Reich that C/W Prods. has bought. Shingle also is developing the author’s “The Devil’s Banker.”

To be published in the summer by Delacorte, “The Patriots Club” centers on a young investment banker whose life is turned upside down after receiving the man of the year award. The banker is subsequently accused of murder and forced to go on the lam, where he learns that he has been framed by a secret society that was founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1787 that has manipulated world events for centuries.

Reich has written several other bestsellers, including “The Runner,” and Par’s Gotham office was proactive in getting the studio a jump before other bids mobilized.
