Adam Cozad's spec script Dubai has been purchased by Paramount Pictures. According to Variety, the geopolitical drama will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Eric Bana has joined the film as an executive producer.

The plot revolves around a young economist in Dubai. He is used by Iranian operatives to help collapse the U.S. economy. Wanting no part of their plan, he goes on the run and tries to prove his innocence.

At this time, Bana does not plan on starring in the film. That may change, though. Dubai does not have an official start date.
