THR writes that Lionsgate has hired Henry Joost and Ariel Shulman, the directing team that broke through with the Sundance hit Catfish and Paramount’s Paranormal Activity 3, to helm the young adult thriller Nerve.
“The novel tells of a high school senior wallflower who, in an attempt to broaden her horizons, joins a global online game of provocative truth or dare while an audience of “watchers” vote and comment. But as she becomes a sensation and advances higher and higher, the game evolves and soon she finds herself in a dangerous and life-ending situation.”
Nerve is the company’s adaptation of the Jeanne Ryan YA novel being produced by Allison Shearmur.
Jessica Sharzer, a writer and exec producer on “American Horror Story,” wrote the adaptation.
