Milchan to Produce John Grisham's 'The Partner'

Arnon Milchan has produced three John Grisham novels into motion pictures: A Time to Kill, The Client, and Runaway Jury. Now he is stepping up to produce a new one in The Partner, and he has lined up director John Lee Hancock of The Blind Side fame to get the job done. It should be a good one:

The plot:
They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm’s offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him.

UPDATE: Trying to shore up her husbands political footing in Hollywood, First Lady, Michelle Obama met with the entertainment industry's key executives including the following: Arnon Milchan, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steve Bing, Berry Gordy, Vivica Ferrell, Quincy Jones, Jerry and Ann Moss, Jimmy Jam, Irena and Mike Medavoy, Rob and Michele Reiner, Terry Lewis, Reed Hastings, Arnon Milchan and Harvey Weinstein.
