Thriller ‘Edge of Normal’ Being Adapted as Movie (EXCLUSIVE)
Bold Films is developing the thriller “The Edge of Normal” as a movie after outbidding several other potential buyers for Matt Venne’s script, Variety has learned exclusively.
The project, based on Carla Norton’s 2013 novel, is being produced by Bold’s Michel Litvak, Matthew Rhodes and Lisa Zambri, along with Industry Entertainment’s Andrew Deane. Bold’s Gary Michael Walters will executive produce, along with Industry’s Ava Jamshidi.
“The Edge of Normal” tells the story of a woman who escaped captivity from a sadistic sexual predator when she was a teenager. Ten years later, she remains haunted by her memories as she struggles to pull her life together. She finds ultimately herself drawn into a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a clever psychopath who seems to know her every move.
“This edge-of-the-seat thriller has the potential to be a razor sharp classic in the vein of ‘Silence of the Lambs,'” Bold chairman Litvak said. “We are excited to find a filmmaker to come aboard to bring this gripping material to life.”
