Under Another Name: Liz Hannah to Make Directing Debut on Feature Adaptation
Deadline brings word that Golden Globe-nominated screenwriter Liz Hannah (The Post, Mindhunter, The Drop Out) will make her directorial debut with Under Another Name, the feature adaptation of Alexandra Andrews’ upcoming novel for Universal Pictures.
Under Another Name is described as a timely psychological thriller about ambition. The novel is currently set to be published in March 2021 by Little Brown in the U.S. and Tinder Press in the UK.
Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious franchise, Bird Box) and Ainsley David will produce via their Universal-based Chris Morgan Productions alongside Amy Pascal’s (Little Women, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) Pascal Pictures. Pascal previously collaborated with Hannah after buying The Post as a spec script.
“Collaborating with Amy on The Post was a life-changing experience,” Hannah said. “And I couldn’t imagine my directorial debut being with any other producer. I’m honored to bring Alexandra’s unforgettable novel to the screen, and I can’t wait to kick off this next chapter with Amy and Rachel, Chris and Ainsley, and the team at Universal.”
Under Another Name will be overseen by SVP Production Sara Scott and creative executive Christine Sun for Universal.
