Liza Dawson Associates is repping the literary rights, with APA repping the film rights. O’Dell’s Back Roads is currently in development at Infinity Media, with Mia Wasikowska, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Marcia Gay Harden attached to star. Fatal Attraction helmer Adrian Lyne is set to direct the crime drama, which was an Oprah’s Book Club pick and a Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection. The novel has sold over two million copies.
This will be the sixth novel for O’Dell, who is also a contributor to several anthologies including Becoming Myself: Reflections on Growing Up Female. Her work has been published in over forty countries.
