Universal Developing Film Based on Secret Service Agent Training

     May 25, 2011


Universal has begun development on an action film based on the recruitment and training of Secret Service agents. Deadline reports that the studio has tapped Greg Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) to write the screenplay, based on a cover story in the Washington Post Magazine written by Laura Blumenefeld. The journalist actually went through Secret Service training and spent time in the 16-week intensive training program that includes weapons training, hand-to-hand combat and psychological methods. The film will apparently follow a group of aspiring applicants through the training program, after which one of them will probably turn out to be a mole, because that’s what always happens.
