We first reported on this project last March, with the news that writer-director David O. Russell came on board to adapt and direct the Matthew Quick novel. While it was believed that David O. Russell would tackle Uncharted: Drake's Fortune next, it seems this project may go first.
The story centers on Pat Peoples, a former high school teacher who was institutionalized for depression and is then released into the care of his mother. He tries to win back his ex-wife but becomes involved with a bizarre neighbor who also has a history of mental problems. The mother role has yet to be cast.
