Tilda Swinton needs to talk about Kevin
The Burn After Reading actress will play an educated New York woman who is struggling to deal with the difficult son Kevin, who she never really wanted in the first place.
After Kevin grows up to become a serial killer who goes on a murderous spree at his high school, she is forced to examine her own role in the road to his downfall.
Tilda will reteam with Michael Clayton producer Jennifer Fox for the adaptation, which is being developed by BBC films.
The 48-year-old actress won an Oscar for her role in Michael Clayton and was nominated for a best supporting actress Bafta for Cohen Brothers' comedy Burn After Reading.
She is due to appear in Italian drama Io sono l'amore, a tragic love story set at the turn of the millennium in Milan.
