Sarah Paulson has just landed the starring role in Amazon Studios’ serial-killer drama Lost Girls. Liz Garbus is making her narrative-film debut with the film. It is based on investigative reporter Robert Kolker’s 2013 nonfiction book of the same name.
Michael Werwie wrote the adaptation, which centers on a mother searching for her missing daughter in Long Island, N.Y. She makes a horrifying discovery in the woods, where the murdered bodies of four girls have been dumped.
Paulson is coming off the Sundance debut of Rebel in the Rye, in which she appears with Nicholas Hoult, and she’ll next be seen on the big screen in Gary Ross’ Ocean’s Eight with Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett.
