Filmmaker Drew Goddard (“The Cabin in the Woods,” “Bad Times at the El Royale”) is set to pen an adaptation of Nick Drnaso’s acclaimed 2018 graphic novel “Sabrina” for New Regency and RT Features. Goddard will also produce and potentially may direct it.
The story follows a man whose girlfriend goes missing, prompting him to live with his old friend – an Air Force surveillance expert who is dealing with his own failed marriage.
After a grisly videotape is anonymously sent to news outlets, her disappearance goes viral and the 24-hour news cycle and social media take hold of the story.
The two men suddenly find themselves targeted by vitriolic conspiracy theorists who threaten their sense of the truth and their faith in each other.
The comic was the first graphic novel to be long-listed for the Man Booker Prize and made many best books of 2018 lists. Rodrigo Teixeira and Arnon Milchan will produce.
