Nash originally wrote the novel as a script, which was rejected twice by 20th Century Fox before turning to novelization after his failed attempts, but later selling the script to various studios several times. During the adaptation attempts, various cast members had conversations to direct the film, including Roy Scheider, Burt Lancaster, Pierce Brosnan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eastwood, although he chose to skip the adaptation of the novel in order to repeat his role as Dirty Harry The dead pool and the Scheider-directed film began production in 1991 but was never completed.
Schwarzenegger would later star in the 2011 film after his tenure as Governor of California with Brad Furman came to an end (City of lies) in the director’s chair, though with the disclosure of the scandal surrounding a clerk in his household and his subsequent divorce, the project was quickly abandoned and Eastwood returned last October to produce, direct, and star in an adaptation.
