Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) is directing a new kidnapping thriller called The Chain for Universal Pictures—and the plot sounds equal parts creepy and crazy.
Based on Adrian McKinty’s 2019 novel of the same name, The Chain will tell the story of Rachel, a woman who learns her 11-year-old daughter has been kidnapped. Her only option? To kidnap another child.
If that child’s parents proceed to kidnap a child, Rachel’s daughter will be released. But if the chain is broken, Rachel’s daughter will be murdered.
Jane Goldman (The Woman in Black, Kick-Ass) is writing the script. We’ll bring you more details as we hear them.
