Facebook thriller lands helmer.
‘The Adjustment Bureau’ director George Nolfi has closed a deal with Lionsgate to take the helm of ‘XOXO,’ a social-media thriller that was penned by Mark Heyman (‘The Skeleton Twins,’ ‘Black Swan’).
In a story that can be characterized as ‘Fatal Attraction’ for the digital age, engaged and on-the-rise young executive Will Campbell clandestinely flirts online and meets an alluring woman on Facebook. He begins a virtual relationship with her, but as the line between online temptations and real life possibilities begins to blur, Will soon discovers that his internet relationship is seeping into his real life… in a deadly way.
Michael London (‘Milk,’ ‘Sideways,’ ‘The Illusionist’) will be producing with Darren Aronofsky and Scott Franklin (‘Black Swan,’ ‘The Wrestler’), through their respective production companies Groundswell Productions and Protozoa Pictures.
