The Girl On The Train scribe has signed on to adapt EILEEN, a novel from Ottessa Moshfegh. The feature is set up at Fox Searchlight with Scott Rudin set to produce.

The story follows Eileen Dunlop, who divides her days between caring for her alcoholic father and dealing with juvenile delinquents as a secretary at a boy’s prison. Things get interesting when a new co-worker, Rebecca Saint John, starts to get her out of her rut.

The novel has received rave reviews since its debut last August, drawing comparisons to Gone Girl and is described as Girl On A Train meets To Die For.

Since writing Secretary, which starred Maggie Gyllenhaal, Wilson has built her around dark, female-driven dramas. She has since penned Fur, Chloe, and is adapting the book Maestra for Sony.

She is repped by and Art/Work Entertainment.
