‘Brotherhood of the Rose’ Plucked by ‘Mummy’ Producer (EXCLUSIVE)

Sean Daniel and Jason F. Brown have acquired feature and TV rights to spy thriller “The Brotherhood of the Rose,” previously developed as a 1989 NBC miniseries.

Also producing are Stephen Michael, Eric Bromberg and Matthew Lindner through their newly minted Bare Knuckle Media partnership focused on development of literary properties.

Cliff Dorfman, whose credits include “Warrior” and “The Crow,” is in discussions to adapt.

The story centers on two orphans raised by a CIA operative to be assassins, only to become targets themselves. David Morrell’s novel was published in 1984, with the NBC mini following five years later and starring Robert Mitchum, Peter Strauss and Connie Sellecca (pictured above).

The project had been been in development at Warner Bros. in 2009 with Channing Tatum attached to star.

Daniel has produced over 30 films, including the “Mummy” franchise, “Tombstone,” “Dazed and Confused” and most recently “The Best Man Holiday.”

The Sean Daniel Co. is producing the reboot of “The Mummy” for Universal, “Ben-Hur” based on the original novel for MGM with Timur Bekmambetov directing, and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” based on the book series, for CBS Films. SDC is a producer on the USA series “Graceland” and has “The Expanse” set up at Alcon TV with Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (“Iron Man”) adapting.

The book property and author Morrell are represented by Resolution Agency and Jane Dystel at Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. Dorfman is repped by Resolution and George Heller at Apostle.
