Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been tapped to adapt Night Film, the Marisha Pessl noir novel for Chernin Entertainment and director Rupert Wyatt, pictured right, says Deadline.
“In Night Film, a journalist investigates the suspected suicide of a young beauty, and discovers she is the daughter of a reclusive horror film helmer and that the girl was murdered and someone is bent on revenge.”
Aguirre-Sacasa, one of the saviors who rescued the troubled stage musical “Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark,” has been working in every medium. He ranges from “Glee” to scripting the remake of Carrie and The Town That Dreaded Sundown and a screen version of Archie for Warner Bros, to writing the book for the Broadway musical transfer of “Magic Mike.”
Chernin bought the book in April and attached Wyatt, who directed Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes for the company.
