SHARP OBJECTS Gets Season Order At HBO

by on

Sharp Objects is that other novel from Gillian Flynn, you might remember her name as she wrote Gone Girl which was made into a film.


HBO thinks that there is something here and after the critical success of Gone Girl. I think this show has a good chance if it opens strong, they are certainly going big with Amy Adams set to star.


Check out the summary below which seems to be straight from the book:

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.
