Charlie Kaufman’s “Ending” Goes To Netflix

Oscar winner Charlie Kaufman is set to write and direct a film adaptation of Iain Reid’s novel “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” for Netflix.

2016’s NPR Best Book of the Year, the story follows a couple on a road trip to meet the boyfriend’s parents on their secluded farm while his girlfriend is contemplating suicide. When Jake makes an unexpected detour, leaving her stranded, intense psychological terror ensues.

Kaufman, Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu are producing the film which would be Kaufman’s third time penning a novel adaptation following “Adaptation” (based on “The Orchid Thief”) and “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind”.
