Deadline reported, Anonymous Content has bought the film rights of novel Foe.
It’s the upcoming psychological thriller of Iain Reid which will be published in August 2018 by Simon & Schuster. Kerry Kohansky-Roberts and Steve Golin will produce with Reid attached as executive producer.
You can read the synopsis of the book below:
Junior and Hen are a quiet married couple. They live a comfortable, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. One day, a stranger from the city arrives with surprising news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm…very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Hen won’t have a chance to miss him at all, because she won’t be left alone—not even for a moment. Hen will have company. Familiar company.
Foe examines the nature of domestic relationships, self-determination, and what it means to be (or not to be) a person. An eerily entrancing page-turner, it churns with unease and suspense from the first words to its shocking finale.
