Grady Hendrix’s novel The Final Girl Support Group has been placed in development as a series at HBO Max. The adaptation is a joint venture between Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah Films in association with Andy and Barbara Muschietti’s Double Dream and Aperture Ventures.
The book’s official synopsis reads:
Lynnette Tarkington is a real-life final girl who survived a massacre. For more than a decade, she’s been meeting with five other final girls and their therapist in a support group for those who survived the unthinkable, working to put their lives back together. Then one woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears are realized—someone knows about the group and is determined to rip their lives apart again, piece by piece.
But the thing about final girls is that no matter how bad the odds, how dark the night, how sharp the knife, they will never, ever give up.
The book only recently hit shelves, but has already been causing a stir for fans of horror fiction. This is the latest adaptation of one of Hendrix’s novels. His The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires was recently picked up by Amazon studios for, and his novel, My Best Friend’s Exorcism will be coming soon from that studio, as well.
Theron will serve as an executive producer on the project along with the Muschiettis. Andy Muschietti is also set to direct the pilot episode.
