We seriously can’t get enough of Sarah Paulson, and luckily enough she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
LOST GIRLS, based on the 2013 nonfiction book from investigative reporter Robert Kolker, follows a mother who searches for her daughter who went missing in Long Island, N.Y. and stumbles upon the murdered bodies of four girls in the woods. The adaptation, written by Michael Werwie, will be the narrative-film directorial debut for Liz Garbus, who is known as a multiple Oscar nominated and Emmy winning documentary filmmaker.
The Hollywood Reporter is saying that the award-winning actress has signed on to star in the serial-killer drama LOST GIRLS for Amazon Studios. Paulson herself is enjoying coming off of multiple awards wins from her time with “American Crime Story,” and “American Horror Story.” Also finding time for films, she can be found in the recently released REBEL IN THE RYE, and the upcoming OCEAN’S EIGHT, due to be released in 2018.
The original book, Lost Girls, An Unsolved American Mystery takes a look at the 2010 discovery of four women discovered on a desolate section of Gilgo Beach, New York, and the media frenzy to not only connect the dots but find the apparent serial killer they found on their hands. The book delves into the stories of each victim and the subsequent possible suspects, along with the results of poor police work and the intense glare of the media.
It will be interesting to see the approach that Garbus takes with this story, but a quick look at her resume shows that she’s the perfect person to tackle this story. One can imagine that she and Paulson will cause us to view both serial killers and the aftermath on victims’ families in a captivating and intense way.
