The Wolverine writer taking on the dark fantasy...
Dimension has announced that they have secured writer Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Unstoppable, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) to write the script for Veronica's Room. The film will be an adaptation of the 1973 Broadway thriller by Ira Levin (Rosemary's Baby, The Stepford Wives).
The play explores the thin line between fantasy and reality. Students Susan and Larry find themselves enticed to an old New England mansion by its caretakers to meet the sole surviving member of the family. They insist that Susan bears a striking resemblance to Veronica, the family member's long-dead sister. They believe her presence will comfort the dementia-afflicted woman and allow her to die in peace. But what begins as a simple errand of mercy quickly spirals into a nightmare cycle of guilt, sacrifice, and murder.
