Lynne Ramsay Directing Film Adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon’

Announced earlier this year, Christy Hall (Netflix’s “I Am Not Okay With This”) is adapting Stephen King‘s 1999 novel The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon into a feature film, and we’ve learned via THR today that Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin, You Were Never Really Here) is directing. The site adds that Ramsay is also working with Hall on the script.

Producers Roy Lee (IT) and Jon Berg are on board the Village Roadshow Pictures adaptation, with Christine Romero and Origin Story’s Ryan Silbert also producing.

In The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, “King offers a frightening suspense novel about a young girl who becomes lost in the woods as night falls.”

“On a six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, nine-year-old Trisha McFarland quickly tires of the constant bickering between her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. But when she wanders off by herself, and then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror.”

“As night falls, Trisha has only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, and only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fears. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox baseball games and follows the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio’s reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her—protecting her from an all-too-real enemy who has left a trail of slaughtered animals and mangled trees in the dense, dark woods…”

As you may recall, the late George A. Romero was at one point attached to direct an adaptation of the novel, but that project unfortunately never came to be.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
