Ken Kwapis Takes In “Exotic Pets”

In Cahoots has acquired the film rights to Diana Wagman’s upcoming dark psychological novel “The Care And Feeding Of Exotic Pets” says Deadline.

The story follows the mother of an angst-ridden teenage daughter and ex-wife of a famous game show host. She is kidnapped and held in a tropically heated house along with the kidnapper’s pet seven-foot long Iguana.

A psychological game of cat and mouse soon ensues as she desperately seeks escape. Ken Kwapis (“Big Miracle”) has begun adapting the book and will direct the film while Alexandra Beattie will produce.
