George Amabile’s Operation Stealth Seed practically demands a film adaptation! Our beleaguered action hero Nico Cortese, Iraqi war vet now turned city detective, is investigating a messy homicide case when he finds himself drawn into a massive international conspiracy, which is fuelled by corporate greed and led by a villain of Machiavellian proportions. Reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh’s signature multi-linear style, this smart political thriller interweaves the stories of multiple players as it explores the tangled and ever-expanding conspiracy to control the world’s food supplies.CASTING:Nicola Cortese (NYPD Detective, US Military Veteran, suffers from PTSD): Robert Downey Jr.  Jeremy Baine (villain behind an international conspiracy to control the global production of wheat): the despicable Kevin Spacey Claire Tran (Nicola’s girlfriend—a serious psychology professor who won’t put up with any of Nicola’s nonsense): Lucy Liu  Terry Cortese (Nicola’s daughter): Kiernan Shipka Corbie Price (one of Nicola’s partners—often a jokester): James Franco  Chaz Malone (one of Nicola’s partners—described as blonde and extremely muscular): Chris HemsworthAnd so, without further adieu, here is our ALU-produced poster for Operation Stealth Seed, as imagined for the big screen:
