Richard Matheson’s Earthbound Optioned


Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald have optioned the film rights to the Richard Matheson novel “Earthbound.”

“Earthbound” centers on a married man who starts an affair with a young stranger, only to realize that she may actually be the ghost of a long-dead woman driven by something much more than earthly passion.

Ronnie Christensen (Passengers) will write the screenplay. Parkes, MacDonald and Keri Selig are producing. Lindsay Devlin is an executive producer.
