Graphic Novel Miniseries Frenemy of the State Gets Green Light
Rashida Jones' graphic novel miniseries FRENEMY OF THE STATE has been picked up by Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, Variety reports.
Jones will be co-writing the script with Will McCormack and producing credits go to Brian Grazer and Eric Gitter.
The adventure revolves around a young wealthy heiress who works undercover for the CIA. Jones co-wrote the original comic, published by Oni Press.
"It's intended for a girl much younger than me, about age 20, an interesting age for girls as they make that scary jump to adulthood," Jones told Variety. "She has lived a life of privilege, attended the best schools and learned every language, but her obsession with spying on exes gets her into trouble and she is recruited to be a spy in exchange for not going to prison. There is a comic element to it, this girl who is so conscious of social standing and wearing the right shoes, suddenly becoming responsible for these dangerous, life-threatening missions."
