Movies: The Rule of Three

Screen Gems has acquired The Rule of Three, "an upcoming horror novel by Sam Ripley, a pseudonym for a well-established author," Deadline reported. Temple Hill's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey (Smile) will produce the film, and are looking for writers to adapt "even as the novel's publishing plans formulate. Simon & Schuster UK will publish the book in June, and Emily Bestler at Simon & Schuster U.S. just pre-empted U.S. rights in a six-figure deal." Ripley is said to be a bestselling British author whose works have sold more than a million copies globally.
