With the much-hyped big screen adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl hitting screens in October, and an adaptation of her second novel Dark Places rolling out in September, it only makes sense that her last remaining book property would also get plucked for adaptation. Now, Entertainment One, along with showrunner Marti Noxon (Buffy), is working on a TV drama series based on her first novel, Sharp Objects, about a troubled reporter tasked with covering the murder of two young girls in her hometown. We’re not saying Ben Affleck is definitely a suspect or anything, but that guy looks pretty suspicious.
