Actress Riley Keough and producer Gina Gammell have launched their own production company named Felix Culpa. Right out of the gate, the production company has acquired the rights to three books. Gammell touched on the company's goals.
"While Riley and I are interested in telling all kinds of human stories, as women filmmakers, we are proud that the first three projects out of the gate for Felix Culpa happen to feature wild, complicated, intelligent female protagonists. We look forward to discovering new, compelling material to bring to the screen."
Aside from Heartthrob, the Oni Press series from Christopher Sebela, Robert Wilson IV, and Nick Filardi, the production company also purchased the rights to Lydia Millet's novel Sweet Lamb of Heaven: A Novel and James Bone's book The Curse of Beauty: The Scandalous & Tragic Life of Audrey Munson, America’s First Supermodel.
