Dave Franco and Emma Roberts are set to star in the film adaptation of author Jeanne Ryan's young adult novel "Nerve" says Variety.
The story centers on a teenager named Vee (Roberts), who is lured in to join a
global, online game of truth or dare, where an audience of "watchers"
around the globe vote and comment on her performance. She is teamed up
with a young man named Ian (Franco), and as they continue to advance through the
game, they realize they just might be playing with their lives, as the
game grows more and more dangerous.
Jessica Sharzer wrote the adapted screenplay from which "Catfish" and "Paranormal Activity 3" directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will helm.
Allison Shearmur and Anthony Katagas are producing the film.
