Dakota Fanning will star in Janusz Kaminski’s upcoming thriller “The Postcard Killings” with Good Films producing and financing.

“The Postcard Killings” is based on James Patterson and Liza Marklund’s book. The screenplay was written by Marklund and Andrew Stern.

Good Universe is handling worldwide sales on the project and will introduce to buyers next week in Cannes.

Our heroine is Liz, carved from the beautiful wilderness, full of heart and grit, accused of a crime she didn’t commit, hunted by a vengeful preacher — a diabolical zealot and her twisted nemesis.
