George Clooney picks up films rights to 'Three Minutes to Doomsday'
Los Angeles: George Clooney and Grant Heslov have picked up the movie rights to Joe Navarro's 'Three Minutes to Doomsday' through their Smokehouse Pictures.
The book follows the FBI's leading body language expert, Navarro, who was sent to track down Rod Ramsey to report on his knowledge or association with Clyde Lee Conrad, an US Army officer who sold top-secret classified information to the People's Republic of Hungary.
It documents Navarro and Ramsey's relationship and interviews against the backdrop of the Cold War, reported Variety.
Howards Means, who collaborated with Robert Baer on 'See No Evil' and 'Sleeping With the Devil', assisted Navarro in his writing. 'Syriana', which won Clooney an Oscar, was based on Baer's books.
