Vondie Curtis-Hall Directing Thriller ‘Residue’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Vondie Curtis-Hall has signed on to write and direct an adaptation of Warren Adler’s 2010 dramatic thriller “Residue,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Jeffrey D. Erb of Framelight Productions will produce the film with Grey Eagle Films.

“Residue” follows a Wall Street firm’s token Jewish lawyer as he finds himself in the middle of a chain reaction of international intrigue and bloody violence after the firebombing of a black church in Brooklyn that was once a synagogue.

Curtis-Hall stars as Ben Urich in the Marvel’s Netflix series “Daredevil.” He wrote and directed “Gridlock’d.”

“I’m very excited to be working on such a compelling, timely piece, where nothing is as it seems as the residue of the past layers the present,” Curtis-Hall said.

Erb’s credits include “Just Add Water” starring Jonah Hill, Melissa McCarthy and Danny DeVito, “Tooth and Nail,” “The Speed of Life” and “Let the Game Begin”.

Adler is best known for his novel and movie “The War of the Roses,” starring Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito.

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; and “Cult,” to be adapted by Alex McAulay.

Curtis-Hall is repped by Gersh. Grey Eagle Films is represented by Jeff Silberman of KHPS Law.
