Loughren is a nurse and Cullen’s colleague, and her bravery and dogged pursuit helped end the killing spree.
The Good Nurse will be directed by Danish writer-director Tobias Lindholm, which marks his first time directing an English-language feature film. It is being written by 1917 writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns, with Darren Aronofskys Protozoa (Requiem For A Dream, Black Swan), directed by Scott Franklin, and FilmNation serve as producers. The project was previously established at Lionsgate.
