Andy Goddard will direct "The Blunderer" for Ted Hope and Christine Vachon's Killer Films and Sierra Pictures, who will also finance. The film is an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 1954 novel, penned by by Susan Boyd, whose husband, screenwriter William Boyd, is exec producing.

Goddard recently directed the season finale of "Downton Abbey."

Ted Hope describes "The Blunderer" as "a modern day Hitchcock doled out with a healthy dose of today’s sexuality and violence, but told with the wit, cunning, and drama that makes Andy the perfect choice for his feature film debut.” More on the synopsis below.

The Blunderer follows the young, successful and handsome, Walter Stackhouse who seems to have it all, that is, until the day his wife’s body is found at the bottom of a cliff. Under the intense scrutiny of the investigation he commits one mistake, then another, until - in true Highsmithian fashion - Walter finds his perfect life derailed. Now Walter is running from the obsessions of the murderer, and the suspicions of the lead cop, not to mention his own increasingly life-threatening blunders.
