It all started when...

...Adam told Seanne about an amazing story he had discovered in Yemen.  Seanne was getting ready to leave her position at Lin Pictures after her crucial role overseeing "The Lego Movie" and was ready to take a break from Hollywood.  Adam, who was just completing his first feature documentary, "Shake the Dust," helped convince her to stick around Hollywood and co-write the script for "The Falconer."  

David Jacobson was just as in love with the story and, after producing "Lee Daniels: The Butler," jumped on board to produce the project with Seanne and Adam.
