Los Angeles-based The Halcyon Company has bought the film rights to writer Daniel Estulin’s best selling book, The True Story Of The Bilderberg Group, from publishing house TrineDay.

The book revealed the workings of the secretive Bilderberg Group, which has about 130 members all of whom are influential figures across politics and business. The book revealed that the group has spent time discussing major world issues and even predicted the current financial crisis, but chooses not to reveal its talks to the public.

Estulin, who is Russian but based in Madrid, spent 14 years researching the book, which attracted global media attention when it was published in 2007.

The Halcyon Company is a leading privately financed, media production and financing organisation run by co-CEOs Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek.

The company also owns the rights to the Terminator franchise, including the latest film Terminator Salvation, starring Christian Bale, plus it has first look rights to the works of science fiction writer Philip K Dick.
