Michael Shannon to make directorial debut

According to Deadline, the Mud actor has signed on to helm an adaptation of the play Eric Larue based on Brett Neveu's 2002 play. The plot follows Janice Larue as she deals with the aftermath of her 17-year-old son Eric shooting and killing three of his classmates in school. While Neveu was originally reacting to the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado back in 1999, he will adapt the work to reference other tragic incidents that have occurred in the U.S. of late, including the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida in 2018.
