The success of the psychological thriller effect from "Black Swan" may have led one of the scriptwriters to pen another thriller. 24 Frames reports that Mark Heyman, one of the scriptwriters of the Natalie Portman-starring film, has written a script for "XOXO", an upcoming movie which will revolve around a Facebook stalker.
The forthcoming movie follows a twenty-something guy who meets a female friend on Facebook. He later strikes a relationship with the young woman, only to find a disturbing fact that the girl is obsessed and stalking him.
Apparently, the plot is a mixture of "Black Swan", "The Social Network" and "Catfish". "Black Swan" is represented by the obsessive relationship, and "The Social Network" contributes to the Facebook focus. "XOXO" will also use social media savvy a la "Catfish" to explore digital identities.
Heyman is allegedly shopping the "upscale genre" script for "XOXO" around the town, including to numerous genre labels, as the movie needs financing and distribution. "Black Swan" director Darren Aronofsky will team up with "Sideways" producer Michael London to produce the upcoming film.
