Amanda Lindhout’s ‘A House In The Sky’ Being Produced At Annapurna Pictures

amanda

Amanda Lindhout was abducted by a rebel terrorist group in Somalia back in 2008, and was held prisoner for 460 days before she successfully pulled off a risky escape attempt that involved converting to Islam and being prepped for an arranged marriage by her captors. She then wrote a book about her experience with co-author Sara Corbett called A House In The Sky, which made The New York Times Bestseller List and which will now be made into a feature film by Annapurna Pictures with Rooney Mara (The Social Network, Her) set to star in the film. Annapurna’s Megan Ellison will be producing the project, which is still without a writer or director, but with a star already involved in the production, it shouldn’t take long to fill these positions. Stay tuned for more!
