Screenwriting part-ners Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard are moving into produc-ing with A-Space, a contemporary spy thriller they have sold to Paramount Pictures. The title of the pitch refers to a specialized, classified social network the US government built to allow intelligence agents to connect and share information — a sort of “Facebook for Spies.” The story involves a young software engineer who discovers something he shouldn’t while working on the site. Jason Horwitch is writing the script. Geoff Stier and Alison Small will oversee the project for Paramount. Miro and Bernard’s most recent movie credits were The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Horwitch created and executive produced AMC’s Rubicon, and he created and co-executive produced NBC’s Medical Investigation. Miro and Bernard are represented by UTA. Horwitch is represented by CAA. The real A-Space launched officially for the nation’s entire intelligence community in 2008. The site is used by analysts within 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, including the CIA, FBI and the National Security Agency, to share classified information and facilitate discussion about cases.
