New Line Cinema has won an auction for Shut In, a spec script by first-time scribe Melanie Toast, Deadline reports.

The spec is an edgy thriller that will follow a fast track toward production. A single mother is held captive by her violent ex, and her two young children are left at risk. She must do everything to protect them and survive.

Producing are Farah Films’ Dan Farah, Vertigo’s Roy Lee (The Ring, It, Godzilla, Blair Witch), and Cinestate’s Dallas Sonnier (Puppet Master, Satanic Panic, The Standoff At Sparrow Creek, Dragged Across Concrete ).

Toast lives in a small Texas town with her husband and children, and her script was first discovered by Sonnier on The Black List website.

Cinestate’s Amanda Presmyk & Danielle Cox will be exec producers along with Farah Films’ Andrew Farah.
