Jesse Eisenberg to play young genius … again

As if Jesse Eisenberg wasn’t already in danger of being typecast. The ‘berg is set to star as Evan Kohlmann – the real-life 23-year-old counterterrorism expert – in a new film from his Social Network producer Scott Rudin.

According to Deadline, The Messenger‘s Oren Moverman will adapt Kohlmann’s exploits from Wesley Yang’s New York Magazine profile¬†The Terrorist Search Engine. Moverman is also expected to direct.

Nicknamed “the Doogie Howser of¬†terrorism”, Kohlmann unearthed terror threats from all over the world by picking apart countless jihadist videos, websites and communications. His testimony was used to convict nearly two dozen terrorists.

Discuss: Will you see Eisenberg as another film about a young genius?
