EXCLUSIVE: Killing Ground helmer Damien Power is attached to direct 20th Century Fox’s No Exit, a thriller based on the novel of the same name by Taylor Adams. Logan scribe Scott Frank is producing the film, which was adapted by Ant-Man scripters Andrew Barrer and Gabe Ferrari.
Published in 2017, the story follows several strangers stranded at a rest stop during a blizzard, where a young woman discovers a kidnapped girl and must determine who the kidnapper is and plot their escape.
