Exclusive: Universal Pictures is remaking iNumber Number, and David Digilio has been set to script the remake of the Donovan Marsh-directed South African thriller that premiered last fall at Toronto. Universal acquired those rights shortly after the fest. Pic is an action thriller centered on an undercover police detective who crosses over from cop to robber in order to orchestrate a major heist. (Check out the original’s trailer below.) Chris Morgan will produce for his Universal-based Chris Morgan Productions. Aram Tertzakian of Xyz Films is also producing and so is Emile Gladstone. Xyz partners Nate Bolotin and Nick Spicer are exec producers. Digilio most recently wrote a TV series adaptation of the Tony Scott-directed Denzel Washington drama Man On Fire for 20th Century Fox TV and New Regency TV, and he sold a pitch based on the Robert Crais novel Suspect to Fox 2000 with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson producing. »
