Gold Circle Films has optioned the film rights to David Rosenfelt’s novel “On Borrowed Time” reports Deadline.
The Hitchcockian thriller follows a journalist who’s about to ask his girlfriend to marry him when they get into an accident and she disappears. Her family and even his friends claim she never existed.
As he writes about his ordeal in magazine articles, it’s unclear whether the journalist is delusional, the subject of memory experiments, or is the victim of a conspiracy. Rosenfelt also penned the Edgar Award-nominated “Open & Shut”.
