A feature film adaptation of Shawn Christensen’s short film Curfew is moving forward.  The pic won Christensen the Academy Award for Best Live-Action Short last year, and the story centers on a man whose attempted suicide is interrupted when he gets a phone call from his estranged sister asking him to go searching for his 11-year-old niece.  Deadline reports that Emmy Rossum (Beautiful Creatures), Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries), and Ron Perlman will star in the untitled feature, which is said to be “loosely” based on the short.  Fatima Ptacek, who played the niece in the short, will reprise her role for the film, which will mark Christensen’s feature directing debut.  Filming will commence this summer in New York City.
