The film, “follows a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence.” Producer Philippe Rousselet commented on the hiring, “We are thrilled to be working on this piece with David. He is such a dynamic filmmaker and we are excited about his vision to make this movie a throwback to some of the most iconic thrillers in cinematic history — not to mention the two females leads being the strongest and most interesting we have seen in some time.”
Wright previously wrote The Crazies, starring Timothy Olyphant and Radha Mitchell. Steve Golin and Alix Madigan of Anonymous Content will co-produce along with Rousselet. Vendome will also finance.
