SHARP OBJECTS Gets Season Order At HBO


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.
