Walden Media has optioned Peter Craig’s spec script Relativity, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows the Fergusons, who on the eve of their 35th wedding anniversary bring their children together to tell them a secret that sends shock waves throughout the household and sets off a series of humorous and moving events.
Craig’s short film Nevel Is the Devil made its debut at the 2006 South by Southwest Film Festival and has screened at U.S. festivals. The short, a comedy in which a supervisor at a consumer product testing laboratory interrogates prank suspects, is an excerpt of Craig’s feature-length script Green that was part of this year’s Sundance writer-director lab. Green is in active development and would mark Craig’s feature film directorial debut.
