Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight," "Red Riding Hood") is set to direct "The Age Of Miracles" for River Road Entertainment.
An adaptation of the Karen Thompson Walker debut novel, the action is set amidst an advancing catastrophe after the Earth's rotation mysteriously slows.
Against this event, the story is described as "a suspenseful and romantic snapshot of one young girl's adolescence, a poignant family drama, and a heartrending glimpse into the everyday tragedies and triumphs that define what it is to be human in a world that might just be ending."
Seth Lochhead ("Hanna") has adapted the screenplay and Bill Pohlad will produce.
