Lynne Ramsay to direct the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon

Lynne Ramsay (You Were Never Really Here, We Need To Talk About Kevin) will direct The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, the film adaptation to the 1999 novel by Stephen King, which is set up at Village Roadshow Pictures.

Ramsay co-wrote the screenplay with Christy Hall.

Here is the book synopsis:

‘The world has teeth and it could bite you with them anytime it wanted. Trisha McFarland discovered this when she was nine years old. Lost in the woods.’

Trisha has only veered a little way off the trail. But in her panic to get back to the path, Trisha takes a turning that leads into the tangled undergrowth. Deeper and deeper in the terrifying woods.

At first, it’s just the bugs, midges and mosquitoes. Then comes the hunger. For comfort, she tunes her Walkman into broadcasts of the Red Sox baseball games and the performances of her hero Tom Gordon.

As darkness begins to fall, Trisha realises that she is not alone. There’s something else in the woods – watching. Waiting . . .

According to Deadline, production is due to begin next year.

Producers are Christine Romero of Sanibel Films, Ryan Silbert of Origin Story, Jon Berg of Stampede Ventures, and Roy Lee of Vertigo. Andrew Childs will serve as executive producer with Village Roadshow Pictures’ EVP of Content Jillian Apfelbaum overseeing production.
