Rogue Takes on Kruger’s The Keep


Rogue Pictures has picked up Ehren Kruger’s script The Keep, an adaptation of the Jennifer Egan novel that the screenwriter will also produce, reports Variety.

The thriller revolves around a mysterious prisoner who seduces a local woman with his tale of a supernatural secret that can transform her life.

Prague-based producer Matthew Stillman snatched up the rights to Egan’s book, a follow-up to “Look at Me,” in 2006, for Kruger to adapt before shopping it to the studios.

Stillman, whose credits include Casino Royale, The Illusionist and Van Helsing, which all shot in the Czech Republic, will produce through his StillKing Films, along with Kruger and the writer’s producing partner, Daniel Bobker.
