A.S.A. Harrison adaptation in development…

Nicole Kidman (‘Stoker’) is set to produce and star in an adaptation of the late A.S.A. Harrison’s psychological thriller ‘The Silent Wife,’ says Deadline. The book, published back in June, is officially described as follows:

“Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds. She likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps. She has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, ‘The Silent Wife’ is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of ‘Gone Girl’ and ‘These Things Hidden,’ ‘The Silent Wife’ ensnares the reader from page one and does not let go.”

Kidman will produce with her Per Saari Blossom Films partner and Mazur/Kaplan partners Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan.
