Former British politician Jeffrey Archer could be the new Robert Ludlum if producer Frank Marshall has his way: he’s developing a movie version of Archer’s novel A Matter Of Honor.
The tale was written in 1986 but set 20 years earlier, and it follows Adam Scott, a man who goes on the run from the KGB and the CIA after receiving a Pandora’s Box of a letter from his military father.
Scott appears in a follow-up novel, Honor Among Thieves, which is also expected to be brought to the big screen.
Marshall, who has produced the Bourne and Indiana Jones movies, said the following via a statement: “Jeffrey Archer is a master storyteller whose suspenseful plots and compelling characters have the potential for a multi-feature film franchise with both domestic and international appeal.”
Canadian private equity firm New Franchise Media snapped up the rights to this and nine more Archer thrillers last year, which sounds like a move with franchise potential.
A Matter of Honor
Published By: St. Martin's Paperbacks
Released Date: 2004-12-28
Archer has written a vast number of books over the years (both fiction and non-fiction), but he’s still possibly best known on these shores for his time spent as a politician, and the scandal that saw him end up in jail in 2001.

Title: A Matter of Honor
It seems innocent enough. A disgraced British colonel bequeaths a mysterious letter to his only son. But the moment Adam Scott opens the yellowing envelope, he sets into motion a deadly chain of events that threatens to shake the very foundations of the free world.Within days, Adam's lover is brutally murdered and he's running for his life through the great cities of Europe, pursued not only by the KGB, but by the CIA and his own countrymen as well. Their common intent is to kill him before the truth comes out. While powerful men in smoke-filled rooms plot ever more ingenious means of destroying him, Adam finds himself betrayed and abandoned even by those he holds most dear.When at last he comes to understand what he is in possession of, he's even more determined to protect it, for it's more than a matter of life and death-it's a matter of honor.
