‘Strangers’: Jennifer Kaytin Robinson Developing Hitchcock-Inspired Dark Comedy for Netflix!!

In-demand director Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is returning to Netflix for her next feature film. As reported by Variety, Robinson has reteamed with the streaming service for the dark comedy Strangers.

Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, Strangers follows two teenage girls named Drew and Eleanor who strike a deal to terrorize each other’s bullies. Robinson will direct and produce from a script co-written with Celeste Ballard, her collaborator on the MTV series Sweet/Vicious. The original Hitchcock film involves two, well, strangers who agree to murder each other’s most hated adversaries after a chance meeting on a train. While Robinson’s film isn’t a direct remake or adaptation, it’s safe to assume that one or both of the girls will end up taking things a little (or a lot) too far. This also isn’t the first time Strangers on a Train has been given the dark comedy treatment – Danny DeVito’s Oscar-nominated film Throw Momma from the Train was also inspired by the classic thriller.
