DreamWorks has decided to bring the massive novel franchise, the MATT HELM spy novels, back to the big screen for the first time since the 1960s.



THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER story reveals Robert Luketic (LEGALLY BLOND) has been hired to direct the first movie, though from which of the 27 HELM books by Donald Hamilton is not yet clear. This would mark the first time the character has been on the big screen since Dean Martin played him in the 1960s.
