20th Century Studios’ is bringing the suspense thriller No Exit to life; announcing the adaptation that took readers by surprise will debut exclusively as a Hulu Original in the U.S. and internationally as an Original on Disney+ and Star+ on February 25th.
In No Exit, Havana Rose Liu (Mayday) makes her feature film leading role debut as Darby, a young woman en route to a family emergency who is stranded by a blizzard and forced to find shelter at a highway rest area with a group of strangers. When she stumbles across an abducted girl in a van in the parking lot, it sets her on a terrifying life-or-death struggle to discover who among them is the kidnapper.
In the novel, Darby Thorne was a college student stranded by a blizzard at a highway rest stop in the middle of nowhere. She’s on the way home to see her sick mother. There was no cell phone reception, no telephone, no way out because of the snow, which made the entire scenario terrifying.
Full of shocking twists and turns, this beautifully written novel has readers on the edge of your seat. Here’s hoping the movie will be able to accomplish this feel of trapped terror as Darby attempted to save the girl.
Directed by Damien Power (Killing Ground) from a teleplay by Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari (Ant-Man and the Wasp) based on Taylor Adams’ 2017 novel and produced by PGA Award winner Scott Frank (The Queen’s Gambit), the film stars Havana Rose Liu, Danny Ramirez (“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Top Gun: Maverick), David Rysdahl (Nine Days), Mila Harris (Young Dylan) and Dennis Haysbert (Breakthrough).
