CBS Films has announced that it has secured the rights to bestselling author Ruth Ware’s brilliant psychological thriller The Woman in Cabin 10. Hillary Seitz (Eagle Eye, Insomnia) is set to adapt the novel for the screen with The Gotham Group (The Maze Runner) serving as producers.

Published by Harvill Secker, The Woman in Cabin 10 follows journalist Lo Blacklock who is given the travel magazine assignment of a lifetime: to spend a week on a boutique ultra-luxury cruise ship with only a handful of unimaginably wealthy travelers. Lo’s dreamlike experience could not be more perfect until late one night she witnesses an unspeakable act culminating with a woman being thrown overboard. The following morning all of the passengers remain accounted for and the ship sails on as if nothing has happened. Exhausted and emotional, Lo has to face the fact that she may have made a mistake – either that, or she is now trapped on a boat with a murderer…

The film rights to Ruth Ware’s debut psychological bestseller, In a Dark, Dark Wood, have already been optioned by New Line Cinema and the film is in development with Reese Witherspoon’s production company, Pacific Standard.

Here at Dead Good, we’ve been huge fans of Ruth’s twisty psychological thriller for some time – so we’re beyond excited at the prospect of seeing it up on the big screen. More The Woman in Cabin 10 film news when we have it!
