CBS Films announced today that it has secured the rights to bestselling author Ruth Ware’s latest mystery thriller THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10. Hillary Seitz (Eagle Eye, Insomnia) is set to adapt the novel for the screen with The Gotham Group (The Maze Runner) serving as producers.
Published by Scout Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 follows journalist Lo Blacklock who is given the travel magazine assignment of a lifetime: spend a week on a boutique ultra-luxury cruise ship with only a handful of unimaginably wealthy travelers. Lo’s dreamlike experience could not be more perfect until late one night when she witnesses an unspeakable act culminating with a woman being thrown overboard. Making matters worse, the following morning all of the passengers remain accounted for and the ship sails on as if nothing has happened.
THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 appeared on the New York Times Best Sellers list for nineteen consecutive weeks. “Ruth Ware has crafted a beautiful and sophisticated mind-bending thriller. We look forward to working with Hillary, The Gotham Group and the terrific team at Simon & Schuster to bring THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 to movie going audiences around the world,” commented Terry Press, President, CBS Films.
