Participant Media and Imagenation Abu Dhabi, which jointly created a US $250 million film fund last year, will partner with River Road Entertainment to produce Fair Game, a political thriller, directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith).

The film, starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, is based on the autobiography of real-life undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame.

Imagenation Abu Dhabi CEO Ed Borgerding stated that the company was pleased to “join forces with Participant Media and River Road on this powerful account of one woman's struggle to speak truth to power”.

Participant Media's president Ricky Strauss added that the story was not just "a gripping, suspenseful thriller with a first class pedigree but also a true story that fits perfectly with our mission to inspire and compel social change”.

Two months ago, the partners had announced their plans to invest in Breck Eisner's The Crazies and Roger Kumble's Furry Vengeance
