Gavin O’Connor Heads To Netflix For ‘Seven Seconds’ From ‘The Killing’ Creator Veena Sud

4 October 2016 1:51 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Again, since Netflix doesn’t share their data on anything, it’s speculation at this point, but there’s no doubt that the streaming giant is eager to continue making their own content.

Broad Green Remaking ‘We Monsters,’ Taps Veena Sud to Write

9 February 2016 3:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Broad Green Pictures has hired Veena Sud (“The Killing”) to write the studio’s remake of the German family thriller “We Monsters.”

The film, directed by Sebastian Ko, had its North American premiere in the Discovery section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The story centers on the parents of a 14-year-old daughter, who’s angry at them for separating and confesses to an act far beyond the realm of teenage rebellion — forcing the parents to struggle with their consciences after they try to conceal the crime.

Sud was nominated for a Primetime Emmy for her writing for AMC’s “The Killing,” which she created and executive produced.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be partnered with Broad Green Pictures to tell this dark, intimate and deeply poignant story about an American family,” said Sud.

Three-year-old Broad Green has specialized in adult-themed movies such as “99 Homes” and “A Walk in the Woods. »
