John Krokidas and Austin Bunn will rewrite HIGHRISE for Fox 2000. The story is being kept under wraps but it’s said to be “Misery” in a Manhattan skyscraper. It’s also inspired by “The Collector” (1960) but not actually based on it or a remake.
Peter Dowling (“Stag Night”) wrote the original spec script. Producing will be Jon Shestack while Jessica Goodman overlooks for the studio.
