Lurie is adapting the screenplay with his wife, author Kyra Davis. Here at Dead Good, we absolutely loved this book and couldn’t be more excited at the news!
Black-Eyed Susans follows the story of seventeen-year-old Tessa who became famous for being the only victim to survive the vicious attack of a serial killer. Her testimony helped to put a dangerous criminal behind bars – or so she thought. Decades later, the black-eyed susans planted outside Tessa’s bedroom window seem to be a message from a killer who should be safely in prison. Haunted by fragmented memories of the night she was attacked and terrified for her own teenage daughter’s safety, Tessa tries to uncover the truth about the killer before it’s too late.
Rod Lurie will also produce the adaptation with his Battleplan Productions partner Marc Frydman.
We can’t wait to see Black-Eyed Susans on the big screen – more news when we have it!
