FILM: "Severance Package" Adaptation

I must have a thing for movie plots that involve someone running for their lives (i.e. Bourne Identity, Enemy of the State, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the upcoming Eagle Eye, etc.), because hearing that Duane Swierczynski's violent action comedy novel Severance Package has been optioned fills me with sheer joy.

The story is about a "media relations director of a financial company who learns that the firm was a front for a covert intelligence agency that is being shut down immediately, with every manager scheduled to be terminated - literally." Awesome! lol If you notice the book jacket says, "Ever wanted to kill your boss?" It makes me think of when James McAvoy flipped on his female boss in Wanted.

Hmm, who should be cast in the lead? a
