'The Wolverine' Writer Mark Bomback Heads

TWC-Dimension has signed Mark Bomback to write “Veronica’s Room,” the movie adaptation of the 1973 Broadway thriller.

Bomback’s credits include”The Wolverine” and “Unstoppable.” He also did a production re-write on “50 Shades of Grey.”

TWC-Dimention announced in December that it had come on board to finance and distribute “Vernonica’s Room,” based on Ira Levin’s play. The film will be produced by the Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki and Lara Alameddine.

Story centers on a young couple who is persuaded to visit an old New England mansion by its caretakers to meet the sole surviving member of the family. They insist that the female bears a striking resemblance to Veronica, the family member’s long-dead sister, leading to a nightmare cycle of guilt, sacrifice and murder.

Eileen Heckart, Arthur Kennedy, Regina Baff and Kipp Osborne played the leads in the 1973 production.

The Allegiance Theater’s Tim Crane is exec producing, and Carly Norris is co-producing. Matthew Signer and Keith Levine are overseeing for TWC.

Bomback is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Attorney David Colden.
