Paramount has announced plans to adapt the upcoming novel, Forgotten, and has Hailee Steinfeld lined up to star.
The psychological thriller, arriving this June, is the first published work from author Cat Patrick, who describes the book as follows on her site.
Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all London can remember are events from her future and the people who will play a part in it. In order to get by, London relies on reminder notes and a trusted friend to navigate relationships and high school life. Adaptable by nature, she tries to view her memory loss as a fact of life rather than a condition. But when London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flashforwards, as the case may be, she realizes that in order to understand her present and her future, she must solve the mystery of her past.
Steinfeld, whose debut role in the Coen Brother’s True Grit last December landed her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, will play Lane with other creative positions on the project yet to be announced.
