Having garnered prominence with 2014’s “The Imitation Game” and working on the science fiction romance “Passengers,“ director Morten Tyldum may have found his next project. Variety reports that Tyldum will be directing an adaption of the novel “The Shining Girls“ by Lauren Beukes. The production companies MRC and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way will produce and finance the film.
“The Shining Girls” centers on Harper Curtis, a serial killer from 1930s Chicago who discovers a house that allows him to travel through time. This house allows Harper to insert and hunt down the ‘shining girls’ through different time. It is only when one of these shining girls, Kirby Mazrachi, survives that things change. Now, Kirby must stop Harper and bring him to justice.
Tyldum is repped by WME and Anonymous Content. The director has also signed on to direct “The Last Days of Night” about the Thomas Edison–George Westinghouse rivalry. He is still working on the film “Passengers,” which stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence and will release December 21, 2016. No release production date or cast have been set for “The Shining Girls.”
