“Jack Reacher” writer/director Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to pen, produce and direct a thriller feature adaptation of the UK miniseries “Unforgiven” at GK Films.
In the original, the story begins as a woman (Suranne Jones) completes a fifteen-year prison stretch for the murder of two policemen who’d come to evict her family from their farmhouse.
Aiming to live a quiet life and reunite with her troubled younger sister, she unwittingly becomes a target for revenge. Sally Wainwright penned the original.
McQuarrie was originally slated to write the project back in 2010 as an Angelina Jolie vehicle. Graham King will produce.
