Not content with having one book, Gone Girl, hitting screens thanks to David Fincher (see the latest trailer here) and another, Dark Places following it to cinemas, author Gillian Flynn is also setting her sights on the telly, with Entertainment One Television developing Sharp Objects as a potential series.

Buffy veteran Marti Noxon is aboard to run the show and write the pilot for the embryonic drama. Sharp Objects, which hit bookshelves in 2009, follows reporter Camille Preaker, who has just spent time in a psychiatric hospital. Her first assignment upon her return to work is not exactly a soft one to ease her back into a routine – she’s dispatched to her tiny hometown to dig into the murders of two pre-teen girls.

Working out of her old bedroom, and confronting her issues with her mother and half-sister, Camille will have to unravel her own dark secrets to have a chance at cracking the case, and surviving it...

With the book already on the receiving end of two Dagger Awards here in the UK, it has low-budget movie guru Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions involved on its journey to small screens. Flynn herself and **Sinister **man Charles Layton are aboard as producers. Gone Girl, meanwhile, lands here on October 3.
