Remember the obsession with John Grisham back in the '90s? It started with the The Firm, followed into The Pelican Brief, and continued with The Client, A Time to Kill, The Chamber, The Rainmaker, and The Gingerbread Man. For a handful of years, his stories spread like wildfire. But they also burnt out quickly, and the 2000s have only offered Runaway Jury in the typical thriller vein, plus the easily forgotten Christmas with the Kranks and the screenplay for Mickey.

At the end of 2008, it looked like the scribe might be slated for a return to form with Shia LaBeouf starring in his not-yet-out novel, The Associate. Though the project hasn't moved much recently, it's finally gotten new life as new reports see Tony Scott circling the project.
