The bidding battle to option rights to Riley Sager’s bestselling novel FINAL GIRLS has been won by Universal Pictures. The adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens as well as Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar.
Dutton published the novel back in July and centers around Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horrible massacre. The press quickly labeled her as the “Final Girl” coined for the group of similar survivors.
Riley Sager’s other mystery thriller Last Time I lied will be released July 10.
Chloe Yellin, Universal’s director of development will oversee production. Universal, Anonymous Content, and Sager’s reps Aevitas Creative Management are also teamed on the adaptation of From the Corner of the Oval.
