Terry George is directing the adaptation of the John Burnham Schwartz novel; Schwarz also wrote the original screenplay. The film will have Phoenix and Ruffalo play fathers on opposite sides of a hit-and-run, says Variety; the Ruffalo character kills Phoenix's son and flees. As the grieving father seeks revenge, the tragedy wears on both men in unexpected ways.
