Oh, this should be a fun one!
Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, along with Barbara and Andy Muschietti, are developing a TV adaptation of Grady Hendrix’s horror novel The Final Girl Support Group
The story of the novel revolves around
“a Los Angeles–based therapeutic support group for six “final girls”— survivors of mass-murderer rampages whose experiences inspired the slasher franchises that saturated horror cinema in the 1980s and ’90s, earning them minor celebrity. “
The adaptation’s pilot will be directed by Andy Muschietti. Theron, AJ Dix, Beth Kono and Andrew Haas will executive produce for Denver & Delilah Films, along with Barbara and Andy Muschietti and Irene Yeung for Double Dream and Adam Goldworm for Aperture Entertainment. Hendrix also will serve as an executive producer.
As a huge fan of the horror genre, especially the 70’s and 80’s horror craze, this feels like a unique way to capture that nostalgia once more.
