Thurman in school shooting
The way I just wrote that makes it sound like it's extremely common, an off-hand comment almost, and it seems that way in the movies too as it comes hot on the heels of the three day old announcement of another school shooting novel adaptation.
From Variety through Coming Soon:
The thriller revolves about a woman whose idyllic life crumbles when she survives a shooting spree at a school.
Actually this looks like a good project, and seeing Thurman in an emotionally strong role and directed by Perelman, it all sounds like it will make for a great movie.
Interestingly Perelman has two other works on his slate right now, one very interesting tale called The Giver starring Jeff Bridges about a perfect community without pain, war, suffering, differences or choice, where a young boy is chosen to learn from an elder about the real world and its pain and pleasure.
