Per Variety, Lionsgate has inked a development deal with director George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), attaching him to helm and oversee a rewrite of social media thriller XOXO.
The original script, by Mark Heyman (Black Swan), has been around for a while now so it’s good to see this project gathering some steam. Nolfi will supervise a rewrite by Heyman, which sounds like some kind of strict overbearing thing until you realize it’s just the natural collaboration between a writer and director that happens on any project.
Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain, Black Swan) and Michael London (Sideways) will produce XOXO through their respective shingles Protozoa Pictures and Groundswell Productions.
The film is described as Fatal Attraction for the digital age and “follows an on-the-rise exec who’s engaged to be married but enjoys flirting online. He meets an alluring woman on Facebook and the two begin a virtual relationship, but the protag soon discovers that his Internet romance is seeping into his actual life in a deadly way.
