Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners / DreamWorks have optioned SL Grey’s upcoming thriller, The Apartment for a film adaptation, Variety magazine reported earlier this week.
The story centers on a couple struggling to move on after armed robbers break into their home and brutalize them. The duo makes a house swap in Paris with a couple they meet online but the supposedly luxurious apartment is run-down and they’re unable to contact the couple. They return home after a series of increasingly unsettling events, with neither able to shake the feeling that there’s now something sinister about their own home.
Macmillan will publish the book in July.
S.L. Grey is a collaboration between Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg. Sarah is a novelist and screenwriter and die-hard zombie fanatic. Louis is a Johannesburg-based fiction writer and editor.
