Universal Pictures plans to make a feature based on the novel Final Girls by author Riley Sager. This title is not to be confused with the 2015’s films Final Girls and Final Girl – confusing we know. This is an entirely – well not entirely – different story.
Sager’s story follows Quincy Carpenter, a woman who lone survived a horror movie-scale massacre. Now dubbed as a “Final Girl”, Quincy finds herself embroiled in another murder spree when two other, separate final girls are found dead.
It sounds like an intriguing whodunit slasher tale will blend the past with the present, hopefully piecing together a puzzle that will be surprising and shocking. If you haven’t read the book yet, then now’s the time!
Final Girls will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens and Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar.
