Justin Haythe will adapt the upcoming thriller from author Michelle Richmond.

20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment are signing a Marriage Pact.

The upcoming thriller from best-selling author Michelle Richmond, due out Tuesday, follows newlyweds Alice and Jake, who decide to join an exclusive and mysterious group known only as the Pact, which they soon discover is not what it seems. 

Justin Haythe will adapt the book for the screen, having already worked with both Fox and Chernin on the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence spy thriller Red Sparrow. Kira Goldberg will oversee the project for the studio. 

Chernin is gearing up for the release of the Kate Winslet and Idris Elba survival epic The Mountain Between Us.

Haythe's other feature credits include Revolutionary Road, The Lone Ranger and, most recently, A Cure for Wellness. He is repped by CAA and 3 Arts.
