WME Signs 'Gone Girl' Author Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn has signed with WME.
The agency will rep the prolific journalist-turned-author in film, TV and book-to-film deals. The arrangement does not include publishing deals, for which Stephanie Rostan of the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency will continue to represent her. She was previously repped by Resolution, who negotiated her Gone Girl deal.
Flynn, who also penned The New York Times best-selling novels Dark Places and Sharp Objects, is currently writing the feature adaptation of Gone Girl for Fox, which paid low seven figures. David Fincher is on board to direct, with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike set to star in the thriller.
What's more, Dark Places is going into production with Charlize Theron, Chloe Moretz and Tye Sheridan starring and Gilles Paquet-Brenner directing, with Jason Blum attached to produce a big-screen adaptation of Sharp Objects. Flynn is writing a pilot for HBO as well.
Flynn is also repped by attorney Karl Austen.
