The Wolverine screenwriter Mark Bomback has signed on to write Veronica's Room, the film adaptation of the 1973 thriller.

Bomback also wrote 2010 thriller Unstoppable and did a production re-write on the upcoming adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey.

Veronica's Room is a play written by Rosemary's Baby author Ira Levin, and was a Broadway production in 1973. Its plot revolves around a young couple, who are persuaded to meet the sole surviving member of a family in a mansion in New England. The caretakers insist that the wife resembles Veronica, the family member's long-dead sister, which leads to a sinister cycle of events.

Casting rumours include Tilda Swinton and Rooney Mara in leading role, with the adaptation possibly produced by Screen Gems in association with Walden Media.
