Film Rights to the Suspense Novel The Keep by Jennifer Egan Acquired by CBS Films

The Keep by Jennifer Egan
More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that CBS Films has acquired the film rights to The Keep, the bestselling suspense novel from 2006 by Jennifer Egan. As previously reported, attached to direct is Niels Arden Oplev, whose last effort was the Swedish-language film adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

In a world from which escape is impossible and where the keep -- the tower, the last stand -- is both everything worth protecting and the very thing that must be surrendered in order to survive, 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.

Read the first chapters of The Keep below.
