Apple has won a highly competitive six-way bidding war for 'Snow Blind', starring Jake Gyllenhaal, reports Deadline.

The movie is a thriller adaptation of the BOOM! Studios graphic novel written by Ollie Masters and illustrated by Tyler Jenkins.

What happens when you discover your parents aren’t the people you thought they were? For high school student Teddy, life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska turns upside down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad online, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. A man seeking revenge invades their town, followed soon after by pursuing FBI agents . . . but what if his dad's reasons for going into the program aren't as innocent as he says?

Gustav Moller is directing and the script is being written by Patrick Ness.

Deadline describes how the pitch process worked...

In pandemic pitching, prospective bidders received a link to a recorded video of the pitch with an introduction from Gyllenhaal and the filmmaker, with Ness guiding buyers through the story in a multimedia presentation that might well set the tone in how to set things up in the age of COVID-19. The town responded enthusiastically to the format and a pitch that’s Prisoners meets Running On Empty. Gyllenhaal took part in followup Zoom meetings.
