Boone Options “Red Tree,” “Drowning Girl”

Josh Boone’s production company Mid-World Productions has reportedly optioned two of Caitlín R. Kiernan’s best-known works “The Red Tree” and “The Drowning Girl” according to Grey Girl Beast.

‘Girl’ follows a schizophrenic young woman after she discovers another woman in the middle of the road, and she begins an obsessive hunt to discover her past. ‘Tree’ follows a woman who leaves the south for Rhode Island and discovers a manuscript from a former tenant which harbors long-forgotten revelations.

“The Fault In Our Stars” director Boone will write the screenplay for ‘Girl’ while Kiernan herself will pen the ‘Tree’ adaptation. Judy Cairo will produce. How this will fit in with Boone’s commitments to “The Stand” and “The Vampire Chronicles” adaptations is unknown.
