According to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Paul Sandberg has optioned first-time novelist Jeff Edwards' award-winning actioner Torpedo. The book is a modern-day technological sea-chase thriller revolving around a handful of U.S. Navy destroyers that must track down a wolfpack of state-of-the-art submarines whose passengers might have been responsible for a biological attack in Washington.

Last month, Torpedo won the Admiral Nimitz Award for Outstanding Naval Fiction from the Military Writers Society of America.
