    Universal has hired Elite Squad director Jose Padilha to helm Sigma Protocol. Padilha was celebrated for his work on Elite Squad, which earned him a Golden Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival last year. The film will begin shooting this summer and is based on Robert Ludlum's final novel. Ludlum created the Jason Bourne character from the mega-popular film franchise starring Matt Damon.

    The plot of Sigma Protocol revolves around a bank executive who uncovers a worldwide conspiracy to corrupt the global economy, which sends him on the run from international assassins and agents.
