Stone Village Productions has picked up the film and TV rights to Every Fifteen Minutes, the latest thriller from author Lisa Scottoline.

Stone Village’s Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell will produce the adaptation and are out to writers and filmmakers.

Scottoline is the author of numerous thrillers such as Final Appeal and Don’t Go, which tend to land on the best-seller charts as well as a series of legal thrillers about the female partners of a law firm named Rosato & Associates. Scottoline has more than 30 million books in print. 

The new book, a standalone story which was published in April, centers on a sociopath who targets a single dad psychiatrist, dismantling his life by turning him into a person of interest in a murder and having co-worker turn on him, all the while the doctor is trying to find a missing high-risk patient.

The novel has been praised for its reversals and use of red herrings.

“The surprises, suspense and unique characters of this novel really lay the table for something riveting,” said Steindorff, “where you are fascinated watching the relationship between the psychiatrist and his patient unfold, and you never know what’s going to happen next.”

Stone Village also recently acquired the New York Times bestselling novel Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. 

Scottoline was repped by CAA and Robert Gottlieb at Trident Media in the deal.
