Paramount's off to Dubai

It’s no easy task to get your script seen by producing bigwigs. But when you’re Adam Cozad, and your script Dubai has a champion in Eric Bana, it’s got to be just a little easier.

Cozad has seen Dubai picked up first by busiest-producer-in-Hollywood Lorenzo DiBonaventura and now by Paramount.

There’s not much word on the plot yet, but we do know that it follows a young American economist who becomes entangled in a dangerous, international attack on the US economy.

While Bana is executive producing, we’re not sure if he’ll actually take a role in the final movie. And now what it really needs is a director and a cast before it can emerge dripping from the development pool.
