David Heyman, the English film producer and founder of Heyday Television (who famously secured the film rights to the Harry Potter film series, as well as produced ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’) has won the nine-way tug-of-war bid for the film rights of the upcoming novel, ‘The Push’. This novel is the first one released by the budding author Ashley Audrian.
Heyday won the bidding war for the Penguin Michael Joseph book which will be coming out next year and the psychological thriller has already been compared with the critically acclaimed ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’. ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ is another psychological drama starring Tilda Swinton, John C. Reilly and Ezra Miller, which was made from the novel of the same name, written by Lionel Shriver.
The novel ‘The Push’ has been described as a suspenseful, emotional read, giving an in-depth look at how any deplorable act can reverberate through generations. The author says that this book will ignite the discussion of “nature vs nurture” as well as question everything we are taught about motherhood and the concept of undying love.
The story follows a young mother, Blythe Connor who is determined to be the warm and comforting mother to her new baby Violet that she herself never had. But in the thick of motherhood’s exhausting early days, Blythe slowly becomes convinced that something is wrong with her daughter, because Violet rejects her mother, screams uncontrollably, and becomes a disturbing, disruptive presence at her preschool. Her husband, Fox, says she’s imagining things. What he sees is an overwhelmed wife who can’t cope with the early days of motherhood. The more Fox dismisses her fears, the more Blythe begins to question her own sanity.
