Spielberg’s banner buys ‘The Apartment’ for film adaptation

Los Angeles, Feb 20 (IANS) Filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s content creation company Amblin Partners has acquired the movie rights to S.L. Grey’s upcoming thriller novel “The Apartment”.

The project has not yet been set up with a producer, reports variety.com.

The story of the novel centers on a couple struggling to move on after armed robbers break into their home and brutalise them.

The duo makes a house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online but the supposedly luxurious apartment is run-down and they are unable to contact the couple.

They return home after a series of increasingly unsettling events, with neither able to shake the feeling that there’s now something sinister about their own home.

Macmillan will publish the book in July.

The pen name “S.L. Grey” is a collaboration between Britain-based Sarah Lotz and South African writer Louis Greenberg. S.L. Grey novels include “Underground”, “The New Girl”, “The Mall” and “The Ward”.
