Movie studio eyes Mitch Zuckoff’s Libya book

Continue reading below

“Thirteen Hours: A Firsthand Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” isn’t in bookstores yet, but Paramount is already negotiating for the film rights. Written by former Boston Globe reporter (and current Boston University journalism professor) Mitchell Zuckoff, “Thirteen Hours” relies on firsthand accounts to present a nonfiction narrative of the 2012 attack on the US Special Mission Compound and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. (The siege, on the anniversary of 9/11, killed four Americans, including US Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.) Zuckoff wrote the book, which is due to be published in late spring, with the surviving members of the annex security team who battled the attackers. The movie script will be written by local author Chuck Hogan, whose novel “Prince of Thieves” was the basis for Ben Affleck’s movie “The Town,” and who also worked with Guillermo del Toro on the vampire novel trilogy, “The Strain.”
