THE FLASH Director Andy Muschietti To Team With Charlize Theron For THE FINAL GIRL SUPPORT GROUP Series

Andy Muschietti (The Flash, It) is set to helm an adaptation of New York Times best-selling horror novel The Final Girl Support Group for HBO Max, with Charlize Theron on board as producer...

HBO Max is developing a series based on Grady Hendrix’s best-selling horror novel The Final Girl Support Group, with The Flash director Andy Muschietti on board to helm the pilot. Charlize Theron (Atomic Blond, Mad Max: Fury Road) will produce via her Denver & Delilah Films company.

The book focuses on a Los Angeles–based therapeutic support group for six "final girls" (survivors of mass-murderer rampages) whose experiences inspired the splatter-film franchises that saturated horror cinema in the 1980s and ’90s, earning them minor celebrity.

"When one of the six is murdered decades after she escaped her assailant, and others come under violent assault, Lynnette Tarkington—herself a survivor of the Silent Night Slayings of 1988—realizes that someone is trying to orchestrate an extravagant final girl finale. But is the killer a garden-variety homicidal maniac, an unhinged slasher-film superfan, or someone more intimately familiar with their group?"

This sounds like it has a lot of potential. Fans will no doubt be hoping to see Theron take on the lead role of Lynette, but there's nothing in Deadline's report to suggest that she's also planning to step in front of the camera.

What do you guys think? Anyone out there read the novel? If so, who would you like to see play the "Final Girls" of the title?
