Mark Bomback (‘The Wolverine,’ ‘Unstoppable,’ ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’) has closed a deal to provide the script for ‘Veronica’s Room,’ a big-screen adaptation of author Ira Levin’s 1973 Broadway thriller.
The dark tale of ‘Veronica’s Room’ explores the thin line between fantasy and reality. Students Susan and Larry find themselves enticed to an old New England mansion by its caretakers to meet the sole surviving member of the family. They insist that Susan bears a striking resemblance to Veronica, the family member’s long-dead sister. They believe her presence will comfort the dementia-afflicted woman and allow her to die in peace. However, what begins as a simple errand of mercy quickly spirals into a nightmare cycle of guilt, sacrifice, and murder.
Daniel Dubiecki and Tim Crane of The Allegiance Theater are on board to produce, alongside Carly Norris.
