David Slade hasn’t made a movie since he directed The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, spending much of his time launching TV series by helming early episodes of This American Housewife, Awake and Hannibal. However now he’s heading back to the movies, as he’s signed on to direct The Widow.
Ray Wright (The Crazies, Case 39) wrote the screenplay, which follows a young woman who becomes friends with a lonely widow, only to discover that their meeting was not by chance.
Vendome Pictures is backing the film, and its CEO, Philippe Rousselet, commented, “We are thrilled to be working on this piece with David. He is such a dynamic filmmaker, and we are excited about his vision to make this movie a throwback to some of the most iconic thrillers in cinematic history – not to mention the two females leads being the strongest and most interesting we have seen in some time.”
