“Amazing Spider-Man” director to helm “Cold Comfort” Soviet spy film

PanARMENIAN.Net - Fox has acquired Cold Comfort (aka How to Catch a Russian Spy) with Marc Webb attached to direct.

The upcoming book is from Ellis Henican, a columnist at Newsday and Fox News Channel political analyst. Scribner will publish the book.

The story follows a man who convinces the FBI to let him conduct a sting against a top Russian spy.

Michael Sugar, Webb and Bard Dorros are producing.

Henican co-wrote Home Team, a New York Times best-seller recounting the story of the New Orleans Saints' rise to a Super Bowl championship, and Damn Few: Making the Modern SEAL Warrior, which hit stores in January.

Webb most recently helmed The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, and will return to helm the sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He's repped by Anonymous Content and Lichter, Grossman.
