Directing duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman – the team behind the documentary film Catfish – have a lot of nerve. (Get it?)
EW has confirmed that the duo will direct an upcoming adaptation of Nerve, Jeanne Ryan’s hit YA novel, for Lionsgate. The novel follows a high school senior who decides to branch out by participating in an online game of truth or dare. The catch? The game is constantly being watched and commented on. Not surprisingly, she realizes it might not have been the best decision when she starts to advance to higher levels and suddenly finds herself in life-threatening situations.
American Horror Story’s executive producer Jessica Sharzer wrote the adaptation.
