D.J. Caurso (DISTURBIA, EAGLE EYE, I AM NUMBER FOUR) is attached to SPY'S KID (not to be confused with Robert Rodriguez's SPY KIDS), based on a series of OREGONIAN articles by Bryan Denson which chronicled the real-life exploits of a father-son spy team. Robert DeNiro and Shia LaBeouf are currently attached to play said duo.
Jim Nicholson was a 20-year CIA vet who in 1996 was convicted of spying and sentenced to 23 years in prison, becoming the highest-ranking officer convicted of espionage. In 2004, his youngest son, Nathan Nicholson, began to seek solace and advice from his father in an Oregon federal prison after leaving behind a failed Army career and in a state of depression. The father raised his son’s spirits but also coached him in spycraft, in effect launching a second act of espionage from behind bars by using his son as a courier. In the ensuing year and a half, Nathan traveled the world selling secrets to the Russians, all the while getting deeper and deeper over his head.
