Cyber thriller turns on deadly game

Germany’s All In Production is teaming with Studio Babelsberg for the film adaptation of “Erebos,” Austrian author Ursula Poznanski’s novel about a deadly computer game that manipulates its players.

The pair are looking for a U.S. partner for the international production.

“Erebos,” which picked up this year’s Youth Literature Prize at the Frankfurt Book Fair, centers on a mysterious and highly addictive computer game that begins to take control of its players. Set in a London school, the story follows a teen who tries to uncover the secret behind “Erebos” and save his fellow students from a game of life and death.

All In topper Annette Reeker optioned the film rights from German publisher Loewe Verlag,

” ‘Erebos’ is an extremely exciting project with international potential and the material is already generating great interest,” said Studio Babelsberg co-topper Christoph Fisser.
