Instant Pictures Picks Up ‘The Lost Husband’ Rights

Bridget Stokes and Vicky Wight’s Instant Pictures has acquired film rights to Katherine Center’s 2013 novel “The Lost Husband,” and is set to partner with 8th Day Pictures on a feature film production.

The novel from author and essayist Center follows Libby Moran, a recently widowed mother of two forced to move back in with her mother, who receives a letter from a presumed-crazy aunt offering her a place to stay and, more importantly, refuge from her mother.

Center was named a writer to watch by BookPage.com for her 2007 debut “The Bright Side of Disaster,” which was optioned by Varsity Pictures.

Wight and Stokes will produce the film alongside 8th Day Pictures’ Glenn German and Adam Rodgers, the pair behind this year’s “At Middleton,” starring Vera Farmiga and Andy Garcia. The team is planning to begin production in May 2015.
