Annapurna Plan B Adapt The Silent Patient

Following their previous collaborations together on “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Vice,” Annapurna and Plan B have announced plans for their next pairing – a film adaptation of Alex Michaelides’ best-selling novel “The Silent Patient”.

The story follows a celebrated female painter married to a fashion photographer who enjoys life a the top of London society. One evening, without explanation, she shoots her husband in the face five times – sparking an international scandal and sending the value of her art through the roof.

Locked in a North London police forensic unit, she refuses to speak a word about the crime and her motives. When a criminal psychotherapist takes on her case, his own motives send him down a dark path in search of the truth.

Sue Naegle and Ivana Lombardi will oversee the project which Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are expected to produce.
