Deadline has revealed that Charlize Theron (The old guard) and Andy Muschietti (The flash) are developing a horror TV series for HBO Max, titled The last girl support group, which is based on Grady Hendrix’s recently released book of the same name.
The last girl support group “refers to a Los Angeles-based therapeutic support group for six ‘last girls’ – survivors of mass murder whose experiences inspired the slasher franchises that permeated horror cinema in the 1980s and 1990s, giving them minor celebrity status.” The synopsis of the book reads:
Lynnette Tarkington is a real last girl to survive a massacre. For over a decade, she has met five other latter girls and their therapist in a support group for those who have survived the unthinkable, working to get their lives back on track. Then a woman misses a meeting, and their worst fears come true – someone knows the group and is determined to tear their lives apart again, piece by piece. But the thing about the latter girls is that no matter how bad the odds are, no matter how dark the night is, no matter how sharp the blade, they will never give up.
Muschietti will direct the pilot for the series, while Theron will executive produce through her company Denver & Delilah Films. Muschietti will also executive produce with his sister and production partner Barbara Muschietti.
