Jessica Biel will topline United Artists’ crime thriller Die a Little, which the studio has set up with Richard Gladstein through his FilmColony and Biel’s Iron Ocean Films, says Variety.
Based on Megan Abbott’s novel, Die a Little explores how the lives of a schoolteacher and her LAPD detective brother are turned upside down by a mysterious woman.
The novel is set in 1954 in the Los Angeles area, but the film will be set in the present day. Marcia and Geoffrey Blake are writing the script.
Gladstein will produce along with Biel and her producing partner Michelle Purple for Iron Ocean. Neil Parris will executive produce.
