Sandra Bullock will star in an adaptation of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box


Susanne Bier (Serena, The Night Manager) is set to direct an adaptation of Josh Malerman’s Bird Box for Netflix. The screenplay is written by Eric Heisserer who also wrote The Arrival.

The film, which Netflix film chief Scott Stuber had been developing at Universal through his Bluegrass Films, will star Sandra Bullock and I really like the set up for it.

The story is set in the near future, where a mother (Bullock) and her two young children are among a small group of survivors after a mysterious alien force has driven the world’s population to deadly violence. The three must make their way on a terrifying journey — 20 miles in a rowboat — while blindfolded, with nothing to rely on but the mother’s wits and the children’s trained ears.

That sounds great and now I need to go and read the book!

Yet another Netflix movie on the way with a big name star involved. We’ve just had Brad Pitt in War Machine and Will Smith is going to be in Bright. Who will they get next?

Production is expected to start in August.

Have you read the book? Do you think it will work well as a film?
