It seems James Wan just never stops working. Along with finishing up Aquaman 2, producing Insidious: The Red Door, The Conjuring 4, and its recently announced television spin-off, Wan will also lend his hand to producing an adaption of Catherine Ryan Howard’s novel 56 Days.
Information on the project is slim, but what is currently known is that 56 Days will be overseen by Amazon Studios and Wan’s Atomic Monster label. Wan previously lent his producing skills to the ill-fated I Know What You Did Last Summer series at Amazon, and 56 Days will mark his first television venture since its poor reception.
Lisa Zwerling and Karyn Usher will adapt Howard’s novel, meaning it is in very safe hands, as between them the writers have contributed to the likes of E.R. and Prison Break.
So far, the most that is known about the project comes from the plot synopsis accompanying the announcement of Wan’s involvement
“It follows two young professionals, striking out on their own in a new city, who are entangled quickly in a charged relationship that leads to a powerful intimacy that is soon cracked open by their secrets … and to murder.”
Sounding like a tense erotic-thriller with the potential for some flashes of horror, we will follow this one and report any further developments.
