Paramount Hires Barbara Curry to Pen Dating App Thriller ‘Gasp’



It’s Fatal Attraction for the smartphone age.

Online dating can be a pretty scary thing, and as we told you earlier this year, Paramount is developing a film that explores those very real horrors. At the time, Mario Celaya was on board to write Gasp, but Deadline provides an update today, reporting that former prosecutor Barbara Curry now wields the pen.

The dramatic investigative thriller is inspired by several true stories of women who were killed by men they met on dating apps…

“The story follows a female detective who goes undercover online to catch a killer who is murdering women he meets on a specific popular app. But when she starts to fall for one of the suspects who has been cleared, she discovers he may in fact be the killer”

Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman’s Offspring Entertainment is producing.

Jessica Sharzer (“American Horror Story”) is co-producing.
