Atomic Finds a Surrogate

The Surrogate nabbed by Fox AtomicOh, man, talk about a suck situation to be in. Fox Atomic just picked up the rights to Kathryn Mackel’s The Surrogate according to this morning’s Variety, and it’s going to make some couples think really hard about how badly they want to procreate…

The story follows a couple that, after many failed attempts at pregnancy, decide to try out a surrogate mother. Their candidate seems perfect: a smart young med student. Only as the pregnancy progresses, they realize the surrogate isn’t who she said she is and is, in fact, quite insane. Soon they’re up against psychological and supernatural forces they never imagined as the girls’ demons spill over into the couple’s lives.

Rod & Bruce Taylor (The Brave One) are working on the screenplay, but no director is in place yet. What’s interesting is that Mackel is known as a Christian thriller author, so one has to wonder how much of that will translate to the big screen…
