According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 and Regency Enterprises have bought New York Times reporter Alex Berenson's upcoming novel The Faithful Spy for Red Wagon Entertainment's Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher to produce along with Erwin Stoff.

Described as a thriller in the vein of 1987's No Way Out, the story centers on a U.S. intelligence officer who infiltrates the dark world of international terrorism.

"It's a classic undercover story about what happens to someone when they are under deep cover for several years and endure profound character stresses," Wick said. "We think it's a way to build a thriller around a performance."
