MGM have acquired the rights to Bed Rest, which is said to be a Hitchcockian-style thriller in the same vein as Rear Window and supernatural horror What Lies Beneath. It certainly sounds like it, with the plot centring on a pregnant woman who is confined to bed rest. Whenever I think of terror involving a pregnant woman, I can’t help but think of the French shocker Inside…But I doubt it will be anything as horribly gruesome as that. However, we can hope.
There aren’t a lot of details at the moment, but Lori Evans Taylor is tied to the film as the writer and Chris Sparling is producing with Karen Rosenfelt. Sparling was the writer behind Buried, a claustrophobic and surprisingly entertaining feature, so hopefully his experience in themes of isolation and desperation will trickle in to Bed Rest.
