Acquired by Vendome Pictures earlier this year, The Widow has found a director in David Slade. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse helmer will take on the Ray Wright (The Crazies) screenplay.
The Widow is said to be an elevated psychological thriller that follows a young woman who befriends a lonely widow only to discover that their encounter was not a coincidence.
Vendome's CEO Philippe Rousselet will produce the project along with Steve Golin and Alix Madigan of Anonymous Content. Vendome's President of Production, Guy Stodel, and Vice President of Production and Development, Sarah Schweitzman, will oversee the project on behalf of Vendome.
