Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners has purchased the rights to thriller novel The Apartment written by S. L. Grey.
The story centers on a couple struggling to move on after armed robbers break into their home and brutalize them. The duo makes a house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online but the supposedly luxurious apartment is run-down and they’re unable to contact the couple. They return home after a series of increasingly unsettling events, with neither able to shake the feeling that there’s now something sinister about their own home.
It is interesting to note that this book has not even been published yet; it is due to come out in June of this year.
