According to Deadline, Carrier creator Dan Blank will write and direct. This will be audio studio QCode’s first feature film adaptation, reports the outlet, although more “pod-to-screen adaptations” are currently in development. There’s no word on what those might be, but QCode’s current line-up of shows include the Rami Malek-starring Blackout, about a nation-wide blackout, and The Edge of Sleep, about a global epidemic where sleep causes death.
Here’s an official synopsis from QCode’s website:
What happens when a truck driver picks up a loaded trailer, but has no idea what’s really inside? Tony, Grammy, and Emmy award winner Cynthia Erivo journeys down a dark and lonely highway in this original scripted thriller from Qcode and creator Dan Blank. With immersive audio techniques that create a dimensional listening experience, the audience is strongly advised to use caution, wear headphones if possible, and listen… carefully.
All 7 episodes are currently available on Apple Podcasts. There’s no word yet on a storyline, additional cast members, or a production schedule. In the meantime, Erivo can currently be seen starring in HBO’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Outsider.
