In the vein of "Strangers on a Train" and "Single White Female," the Charles Bohl-penned script follows a female track star who has distanced herself from her past bad behavior and makes a new best friend without realizing the woman is crazy and framing her for murder.
Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are producing via their A Zadan/Meron Production banner along with Alison Rosenzweig, who produced via the Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films banner.
Michael Gaeta will executive produce via Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films along with Travis Knox.

Morris was courted Stateside, landing on ABC's "Brothers & Sisters," where he rose through the ranks to executive producer/director.
He is repped by Gersh.
