Myriad Hears The “Cry of the Owl”

Myriad Pictures is set to domestically release the psychological thriller “Cry of the Owl” later this Fall reports Variety.

Based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith (“The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “Strangers on a Train”), the story centers on a young woman (Julia Stiles) who discovers she is being stalked by a troubled local man (Paddy Considine).

Her fear turns to attraction until her boyfriend finds out and devises an elaborate scheme to frame Considine’s character for a murder that never happened.

Jamie Thraves penned and will direct the project.
