Natalie Erika James, who directed the 2020 dramatic horror movie, Relic, is attached to direct and co-write the script with Christian White, based off an initial script by Skylar James.
Alexa Ginsburg is overseeing the project for Sunday Night Productions, whose mission statement is to develop grounded human stories.
