FILM: "Bourne" in Reverse

Paul Schrader (Raging Bull) just sold his spy thriller The Dying of the Light.

"The story follows a CIA agent who's forced to retire because he's begun to suffer the effects of Alzheimer's and finds he's racing the clock when he takes on a final mission."

Casting hasn't been decided yet, but the idea of the plot just reminds me of Bourne Identity in reverse. Instead of trying to remember his past in order to start his future, he's trying to retain it in order to put it behind him. If written well and cast correctly, it could be an Oscar my standards anyway.
