Paramount has picked up the new thriller Murder In The White House.

In a sign that Hollywood studios do still want to make thrillers – not least in the light of the success of Knives Out – Paramount Pictures has just snapped one up to add to its slate.

The film goes by the title Murder In The White House, and to assure 90s movie nerds, it’s no remake of the Wesley Snipes-headlined Murder At 1600. Instead, what we’re set to get here is a whodunnit set at the White House. The President of the United States is murdered, and a secret service agent finds herself tasked with discovering who did it. She’s got until the morning to work it out, because a peace agreement falls apart and basically we all day.

It’s been written by Jonathan Stokes, and Paramount has paid a six figure sum for the screenplay. The plan now is for Neal Moritz and Toby Jaffe to produce the movie under their Original Film banner.

It’s still too early to work out who will be directing and starring in the film. As we hear more, we’ll let you know…
