Universal has landed up the film rights for the latest Gillian Flynn adaptation, whose Gone Girl became a huge hit when it was transferred to the big screen in 2014.
-
The studio won a three-party bidding war for Flynn’s short story The Grownup. The author will produce the film alongside Michael De Luca (The Social Network), with Natalie Krinsky (Gossip Girl) on board to write the screenplay.
-
The 64-page story's about a young woman who works as a clairvoyant-cum-fortune-teller. One customer's reading brings her to an old house, where she has a harrowing encounter with the supernatural.
-
The story originally appeared in Game of Thrones' author George R R Martin’s literary anthology, Rogues, under the title What Do You Do?
-
The Grownup will be the third of Flynn's works to be adapted for the silver screen. Gone Girl in 2014 was the first and was a wild box office and critical success.
-
Dark Places, starring Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, was released last year, but was poorly received.
