Vendome Pictures announced today that it has acquired the spec script The Widow written by Ray Wright. Vendome's CEO Philippe Rousselet will produce the project along with Steve Golin and Alix Madigan of Anonymous Content. Vendome will also finance the film for which it is currently seeking a director with plans to commence production this year.
Rousselet stated, "'The Widow' is one of those rare pieces that is as interesting and different as it is commercial. Ray's script, which is so nuanced and surprising both in terms of plot and character, is certain to garner attention from some of the smartest and most dynamic filmmakers and talent. We look forward to putting it together over the coming months."
