MRC and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way are trying to figure out how to bring “The Shining Girls”, a hot new book by Lauren Beukes (out next week on a wave of good buzz) to the small screen.
The novel “tells the story of a serial killer named Harper Curtis who discovers a house in Depression-era Chicago that allows him to time travel through the decades. To keep traveling, he must kill “shining girls,” girls burning bright with talent and potential. One of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and teams up with an ex-homicide reporter at the Chicago Sun-Times in order to bring the killer to justice.”
Very interested to see how this one turns out.
