Broad Green Remaking ‘We Monsters,’ Taps Veena Sud to Write

Broad Green Pictures has hired Veena Sud (“The Killing”) to write the studio’s remake of the German family thriller “We Monsters.”

The film, directed by Sebastian Ko, had its North American premiere in the Discovery section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The story centers on the parents of a 14-year-old daughter, who’s angry at them for separating and confesses to an act far beyond the realm of teenage rebellion — forcing the parents to struggle with their consciences after they try to conceal the crime.

Sud was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her writing for AMC’s “The Killing,” which she created and executive produced.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be partnered with Broad Green Pictures to tell this dark, intimate and deeply poignant story about an American family,” said Sud.

Three-year-old Broad Green has specialized in adult-themed movies such as “99 Homes” and “A Walk in the Woods.”

“Sebastian Ko’s riveting thriller had us on the edge of our seats, but the story’s brilliant focus on familial dynamics, and themes of guilt, anguish and betrayal are what drew us in even deeper,” said Daniel Hammond, chief creative officer at Broad Green Pictures.

Alix Madigan and Shary Shirazi will oversee the project on behalf of Broad Green. The deal was brokered on behalf of Sud by attorney Bruce Gellman. Christopher Tricarico and Nadisha Foster handled for Broad Green.

Sud is represented by WME.
