"Catfish" and "Paranormal Activity 3" directors Henry Joost and Ariel Shulman have been set to helm "Nerve," an adaptation of the Jeanne Ryan young adult novel.

The story follows a high school senior wallflower who joins a global online game of truth or dare while an audience of 'watchers' vote and comment.

She becomes a sensation, but the game evolves to the point that she finds herself in a dangerous life-threatening situation.

Jessica Sharzer penned the adaptation while Allison Shearmur will produce.
