The Devil's Banker: According to Variety, Paramount-based Cruise/Wagner has decided to make a deal for The Devil's Banker, buying the screen rights to Christopher Reich's thriller for C/W to produce.

The project, seen as a platform to track the new heroes of the war on terrorism, follows a female British spy, who's an ace undercover operative, and a U.S. agent/forensic accountant who got into counterterrorism via a business career. The duo join forces to try to stop a terrorist attack aimed at the United States by tracking a mastermind who's auditing their every move while transferring vast sums of money from country to country and bank to bank.
