Posted on Thursday, June 18th, 2020 by Ben Pearson
Edgar Wright is about to tackle some dark material.
The filmmaker, who has built his career making frequently comedic genre exercises, is going to direct a film adaptation of The Chain, author Adrian McKinty’s bestselling novel about a mother whose daughter is kidnapped. Jane Goldman, whose credits include films like Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and more, will write the screenplay, making this the first time Wright will direct a film that he isn’t writing.
