The works of best-selling thriller writer James Rollins have captured the attention of legendary producer Dino De Laurentiis.

According to Risky Business, Dino, long with his wife Martha, have acquired the film rights to Rollins’ SIGMA FORCE series.

SIGMA FORCE is a covert squad in the Defense department comprised of scientists and military operatives. Rollins likes to describe them as “killer scientists” and has written six SF novels so far. The books mix history, cutting-edge technology and action adventure and read like modern day Indiana Jones.

The goal is to create a franchise.
