According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated scribe Josh Olson -- who adapted A History of Violence for New Line Cinema -- has adapted and will direct Until Gwen, an indie feature based on the acclaimed Dennis Lehane short story. Charles Block, Chip Diggins and Olson will produce.

Gwen is described as a dark crime drama that explores a relationship between a father who is a con man and a son who has been raised on the edges of society, without going to school and without a Social Security number. The relationship turns complicated when the son falls for a woman who helps him find his own identity.
