John Grisham’s Coming Back Into Cinema Fashion With 2 Projects In The Works!

We’ve already given you the heads up that Mark Wahlberg is circling THE PARTNER and now it looks like his other novel THE ASSOCIATE is headed to big screen land.

Adrian Lyne (Unfaithful) is looking to direct the film which tells the tale of a lawyer who is push and pulled between corporate clients trying to lock in deals for nefarious reasons. No-one is attached to the project, originally Tony Scott was going to direct with Shia LaBeouf in the lead but they’ve sinced moved on.

If you’ve not seen UNFAITHFUL (2002) it’s really worth checking out. Diane Lane was nominated for an oscar for the film – a really solid, intelligent adult drama. Check out the trailer featured.
