Anna Camp will co-produce and star in the film adaptation of Warren Adler’s family drama “The Serpent’s Bite” for Grey Eagle Films.

It’s the first producing gig for Camp, whose credits include “The Help,” both “Pitch Perfect” films and HBO’s “True Blood.” Grey Eagle is planning an announcement soon on a director and screenwriter.

Adler is best known for the novel “The War of the Roses”; Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito starred in the 1989 movie adaptation.

“The Serpent’s Bite” centers on a father attempting to reunite with his older children during a nostalgic horse trek through the wilds of Yellowstone. The story explores how an obsession for celebrity and blind ambition can distort familial love and turn a beloved child into a grotesque monster.

Camp will portray the adult daughter, Courtney Temple.

Other Grey Eagle projects include “The War of the Roses: The Children,” co-developed by Permut Presentations; “Target Churchill,” co-developed by Solution Entertainment Group; “Mourning Glory,” to be adapted by Karen Leigh Hopkins; “Cult,” to be adapted by Alex McAulay: and “Torture Man,” to be adapted by Black List screenwriter Hernany Perla.

Camp is represented by UTA, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and Schreck Rose.

    Looking forward to this. I strongly feel Anna Camp is just one hit away (critical or box office) from being an A-lister.
