“Tangerine” is a psychological thriller set against the political climate of 1950s Morocco.

Imperative Entertainment acquired the film rights to “Tangerine” – which is based on Christine Mangan’s novel, reports variety.com.

“Christine has created an evocative and electrifying novel. We’re thrilled to not only be working with George, Grant, and the talented team at Smokehouse Pictures, but also one of the most skilled actors on the planet in Scarlett. This is an all-star team and we can’t wait to bring this stunning tale to life,” Friedkin said.
