According to Variety, Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have picked up the screen rights to Frenemy of the State. This is a graphic novel miniseries that was created by actress Rashida Jones. She is also going to pen the script with Will McCormack.
Brian Grazer is producing is this project.
The story follows a young wealthy heiress that works undercover for the CIA. The original comic was published by Oni Press.
"It's intended for a girl much younger than me, about age 20, an interesting age for girls as they make that scary jump to adulthood," Jones said of the character she helped create. "She has lived a life of privilege, attended the best schools and learned every language, but her obsession with spying on exes gets her into trouble and she is recruited to be a spy in exchange for not going to prison. There is a comic element to it, this girl who is so conscious of social standing and wearing the right shoes, suddenly becoming responsible for these dangerous, life-threatening missions."
