“Pig” director Michael Sarnoski is set to pen and direct a feature film adaptation of Nick Drnaso’s 2018 graphic novel “Sabrina,” the first graphic novel to be long-listed for the Man Booker Prize, for New Regency and RT Features.
The story follows a grieving man whose girlfriend goes missing and who goes to live with his old friend – an Air Force surveillance expert agent who is dealing with a failed marriage.
After a grisly videotape is sent anonymously to news outlets, Sabrina’s disappearance goes viral. As the 24-hour news cycle and social media take hold of the story, the two men are targeted by vitriolic conspiracy theorists that threaten their sense of the truth and their faith in each other.
The project will come after he wraps his next directing work on the “A Quiet Place” spin-off.
