I couldn’t be more thrilled to share some super crazy exciting FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH movie news!
— Variety (@Variety) September 22, 2015
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark on Game of Thrones) is in talks to play Mary in the film adaptation of The Forest of Hands and Teeth! Doug Liman (the Bourne Movies, Edge of Tomorrow) is set to co-produce with director Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden).
I’m over the moon excited about this — in fact, I’m still pinching myself! I think Maisie Williams would make a brilliant Mary! Plus, I love Doug Liman’s movies — The Edge of Tomorrow was one of my favorites last year! Kate Maberly has been wonderful to work with — she really gets this book and Mary’s character. Her passion for this project has been a dream come true!
I can’t share any more information right now, but as soon as I can I’ll be sure to post the info here and, of course, on Twitter. In the meantime, below are some links to articles discussing the latest developments.
