“Guilty Wives,” penned by Patterson and David Ellis and set to be published in March, is the story of a woman who had everything — a handsome, successful husband; beautiful children; and cool, jet-set friends. But she steps into a terrible trap on a girls’ weekend in Monte Carlo and wakes up sentenced to life in the treacherous French prison system and begins a quest to set things right again.

The prolific Patterson’s best known for his series centering on psychologist Alex Cross, with “Along Came a Spider,” “Kiss the Girls” and the upcoming “I, Alex Cross” adapted into features. He is also the creator of detective series “The Women’s Murder Club,” from which the ABC drama series was adapted.

Rattray and Styler said, “It’s an ideal project for Maven as we expand into more commercial territory.”

Maven’s first feature film, “Imogene,” starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon, is currently in post-production, and Maven is in development with New Regency on “Second Act,” with Julia Roberts set to produce and star, as well as “Cancer Vixen,” with Cate Blanchett starring.

Maven’s also producing with Sarah Jessica Parker on “A Fair Marriage” as a potential starring vehicle for Parker through her Pretty Matches banner with partner Allison Benson (Daily Variety, Oct. 21).
