Isaac Adamson, the novelist who wrote Bubbles, the No 1 script on 2015’s Black List, has been set to adapt Alcon Entertainment’s psychological thriller The Ice Twins. Based on S.K. Tremayne’s book, the story centers on the relocation of a couple whose life is struck by tragedy when one of their twin daughters is killed in an accident. As the dark tale unfolds, their surviving daughter begins insisting that she is her deceased sister and gradually becomes more disturbed.

Tremayne’s The Ice Twins was recently the No. 1 fiction paperback in the UK and has been on a top 10 bestsellers in Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden and the U.S.

Adamson, whose screenplay Bubbles is a biopic of Michael Jackson told from the point of view of his chimpanzee, is repped by CAA and manager Lee Stobby.
