Timothy Truman's Scout has been optioned for a film written and directed by The Conspiracy's Chris MacBride, according to Deadline. Studio 8 reportedly acquired the film option, with Hell or High Water's Braden Aftergood on-board as a producer. Truman is said to be consulting on the big-screen adaptation.
Debuting in 1985, Scout was a near-future series following an Apache man named Emanuel Santana who recently concluded a stint as a U.S. Army Ranger. Part crime procedural and conspiracy thriller, Scout was set in a near-future era where the United States had fallen on hard times and became a third-world country after being punished by other countries for environmental damage it caused to the world.
