Myriad Pictures has purchased the rights for the stirring drama from this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival, THE GIRL IN THE BOOK, starring Emily VanCamp and Michael Nyqvist. In addition to owning the domestic rights to the Marya Cohen film, Myriad will also handle the sale of the international rights.
Book follows Alice Harvey (VanCamp) a junior book editor and daughter of a successful lit agent. When Alice is asked to handle the re-release of Milan Daneker’s (Nyqvist) hit book, which is based on painful events from Alice’s past, she must confront and deal with the dark memories that come flooding back.
VanCamp starred in the popular ABC series, Revenge, and is repped by UTA and Thruline Entertainment.
Nyqvist was recently in John Wick and played Mikael Blomkvist in the original film adaptations of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. He is repped by ICM and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
