Weaponized Goes to Universal Pictures

16 July 2013 2:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has finalized a deal to adapt the upcoming novel Weaponized, which was written by Safe House writer David Guggenheim and Nicholas Mennuti. Here is the book's official description.

"Kyle West is a wanted man. Having betrayed his former boss-billionaire government contractor Christopher Chandler - Kyle's hiding in Cambodia, frantic for a way home, and finding more and more reasons to be paranoid.

In a moment of weakness, he swaps passports with a mysterious fellow American, Julian Robinson, in Cambodia on business.

This one decision plunges Kyle into a Pandora's Box of intrigue that threatens to swallow him whole. He's suddenly being pursued by Russian oligarchs, Chinese operatives, the CIA, and a beautiful woman trained to kill; because Robinson is certainly not who he seemed, and time is running out for Kyle to discover the truth about the dangerous man who stole his identity."

David Guggenheim is writing the screenplay adaptation, »

The best bar in the world that I know about

17 February 2013 7:15 PM, PST | blogs.suntimes.com/ebert | See recent Roger Ebert's Blog news »

The first Chicago bar I drank in was the Old Town Ale House. That bar was destroyed by fire in the 1960s, the customers hosed off, and the Ale House moved directly across the street to its present location, where it has been named Chicago's Best Dive Bar by the Chicago Tribune.

I was taken to the Ale House by Tom Devries, my fellow college editor from the Roosevelt Torch. It was early on a snowy Sunday afternoon. I remember us walking down to Barbara's Bookstore to get our copies of the legendary New York Herald-Tribune Sunday edition. Pogo. Judith Crist. Tom Wolfe. Jimmy Breslin. I remember peanut shells on the floor and a projector grinding through 16mm prints of Charlie Chaplin shorts. I remember my first taste of dark Löwenbräu beer. The Ale House was cool even then.

I returned to the North Avenue drinking scene on New Year's Eve »
