Ben Coccio, one of the writers behind this month's The Place Beyond the Pines has been brought aboard New Regency's planned adaptation of Michael Koryta's So Cold the River, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Published in 2010, the novel is officially described as follows:

t starts with a beautiful woman and a challenge. As a gift for her husband, Alyssa Bradford approaches Eric Shaw to make a documentary about her father-in-law, Campbell Bradford, a 95-year-old millionaire whose past is wrapped in mystery. Eric grabs the job even though there are few clues to the man's story—just the name of his hometown and an antique water bottle he's kept his entire life.

In Bradford's hometown, Eric discovers an extraordinary history—a glorious domed hotel where movie stars, presidents, athletes, and mobsters once mingled, and mineral springs whose miraculous waters were reputed to cure everything from insomnia to malaria. Neglected for years, the resort has been restored to its former grandeur just in time for Eric's stay.

Just hours after his arrival, Eric experiences a frighteningly vivid vision. As the days pass, the frequency and intensity of his hallucinations increase and draw Eric deeper into the area's dark history. He discovers that something besides the historic resort town has been restored—a long-forgotten evil that will stop at nothing to regain its lost glory. Brilliantly imagined and terrifyingly real, So Cold the River is a tale of irresistible suspense with a racing, unstoppable current.


So Cold the River is currently without a cast or director, but the trade notes that Kevin Misher and Scott Silver have both signed on to produce. Check back for details on the project as they become available.

I was more intrigued before the plot turned supernatural, but still, this has the potential to be an atmospheric thriller given the setting.
