In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Kyle will be adapting Jon Land's best-seller The Seven Sins: The Tyrant Ascending for the big screen.

Producers Moritz Borman and Peter Graves licensed the film rights to the novel from Fabrizio Boccardi, who is an investor, producer and CEO of Las Vegas-based King Midas World Entertainment, via Tyrant One Imperium Pictures.

The book centers on Michael "The Tyrant" Tiranno, he is the adopted son of an Italian crime lord who is called upon to defend the gambling mecca from terrorist attacks. Land has stated that the character is somewhat inspired by Boccardi's life story and is actually designed "as the first of a series of James Bond-like adventure tales."
