Emma Roberts is set to headline graphic novel adaption Anya’s Ghost.
The graphic novel was written and illustrated by Vera Brosgol and was released in 2011. Based on a screenplay by A Monster Calls author and screenwriter Patrick Ness, the story follows Anya, an unpopular 16-year-old who gets stranded in an underground cave where she rescues Emily (Roberts), the apparent ghost of a teenage girl who died a century earlier.
Initially, Anya thinks her new “friend” may be the best thing that ever happened to her. But the relationship has unforeseen consequences for Anya, her friends and her family.
Roerts recently appeared in Scream Queens and can currently be seen in indie film Who We Are Now at SXSW.
