Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Swedish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is attached to direct the screen adaptation of the supernatural thriller The Keep by Jennifer Egan. Ehren Kruger (Arlington Road, The Ring, The Skeleton Key, The Brothers Grimm) wrote the screenplay for Rogue Pictures, which acquired the project in 2008.
Neither the book nor its adaptation should be confused with Michael Mann's 1983 film The Keep, which was based on the novel by F. Paul Wilson.
About The Keep (from the publisher): Two cousins, irreversibly damaged by a childhood prank, reunite twenty years later to renovate a medieval castle in Eastern Europe. In an environment of extreme paranoia, cut off from the outside world, the men reenact the signal event of their youth, with even more catastrophic results. And as the full horror of their predicament unfolds, a prisoner, in jail for an unnamed crime, recounts an unforgettable story that seamlessly brings the crimes of the past and present into piercing relation.
