Flynn wrote the screenplay for David Fincher’s 2014 Gone Girl adaptation, for which she won a Critics’ Choice Award. She has co-written the script for Sharp Objects alongside Marti Noxon (UnREAL). The series will be directed by Big Little Lies showrunner Jean-Marc Vallée.
Amy Adams stars as Camille Preaker and Patricia Clarkson plays her mother, Adora. Adams and Clarkson can essentially do no wrong, so their performances alone are worth the space on your DVR. But also it’s another female-led crime thriller from Vallée. You have reason to get hyped! To top it all off, the wait isn’t too long. Sharp Objects is set to premiere on HBO this summer.
Here is the book’s summary, courtesy of the publisher:
Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family’s Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming.
