Sony Seeks A “Reliable Wife”

Sony Pictures has acquired rights to Robert Goolrick’s novel “The Reliable Wife” says The Hollywood Reporter

Set in rural Wisconsin in 1908, the book centers on a middle-aged widower who places a newspaper ad seeking “a reliable wife.”

Instead of fielding a homely applicant, the man finds himself welcoming a gorgeous former courtesan with an agenda of her own.

Michael De Luca is attached to produce.
