A former FBI agent turned novelist said an independent movie producer is interested in turning the book into a movie, the website Tickle The Wire reported.
Herman Groman, a 25-year veteran of the FBI who retired in 2005 and now heads security for a Las Vegas casino, published his first novel, “Pigeon Spring,” earlier this year. The story follows an ex-FBI agent who (coincidentally) works for security at a Las Vegas hotel.
According to Tickle the Wire, director/producer Joseph Merhi — who produced “The Whole Ten Yards” with Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry, and “Spartan” starring Val Kilmer — read the book and now wants to turn it into a movie.
“I’m excited about it,” Groman told Tickle the Wire. Groman said he had met with Mehri several times, and the director felt confident about the project. According to Groman, they discussed creating a feature film and a spinoff TV series based on the book.
