According to The Hollywood Reporter, Joel Fields is taking a Detour. The writer has been hired by Paramount Pictures to turn the James Siegel novel of the same name into a feature, which will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

Detour, which hit shelves in March, follows an American couple that travels to Colombia to adopt an infant. There, they and their baby are kidnapped by guerrillas, and the husband, pressed into duty as a drug mule, has to swallow 36 condoms filled with cocaine and deliver the contraband to New Jersey.
