Dragon Tattoo Helmer Enters “The Keep”

Danish director Niels Arden Oplev (“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”) is set to direct an adaptation of Jennifer Egan’s third novel “The Keep” for Rogue Pictures says Empire Online.

Ehren Kruger (“The Ring,” “The Brothers Grimm”) penned the script back in 2006, a gothic tale about two estranged cousins who reunite after twenty years to renovate a dilapidated old castle in Germany. Their efforts unleash creepy and dangerous consequences for all.

The project is not to be confused with F. Paul Wilson’s novel of the same name and Michael Mann’s 1983 film adaptation of that property.
