Angelina Jolie is attached to star in The Kept, a period revenge thriller from Imperative Entertainment, the company behind All the Money in the World.
The project adapts the searing 2014 James Scott novel newly acquired by Imperative, which has set Alice Birch, who wrote the Florence Pugh-starring period drama Lady Macbeth, to pen the screenplay.
Set in the winter of 1897 in rural New York, the story is set in motion when a woman returns to her isolated homestead to discover that her husband and four of her children were murdered. The woman is injured by a shot and is tended to by her remaining son, Caleb, who survived by hiding in the pantry. With her 12-year-old by her side, the woman sets out to find those responsible, but the gritty journey in blizzard conditions to a lake town will reveal secrets that will test the bond of mother and son.
