Counter-Terrorist: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Runaway Jury director Gary Fleder has boarded MGM's 9/11 drama Counter-Terrorist. The drama is based on the real-life story of FBI counterterrorism agent John P. O'Neill, who lost his life in the World Trade Center attacks.

While MGM is hopeful that Fleder will become involved as director, the current deal, according to his reps, calls for him only to develop the project, which originated as an article in the New Yorker written by Lawrence Wright, who is adapting the story for MGM.
