A new Sabrina feature film is heading our way. 

According to multiple sources, New Regency, RT Features, and Drew Goddard have teamed up to produce the film. The screenplay will be penned by the Oscar-Nominated scribe from Nick Drnaso’s graphic novel. Goddard could also be tapped to helm the project.

According to Variety, the 2018 graphic novel was to first of its genre to be long-listed for the prestigious Man Booker Prize.

It follows a grieving man after his girlfriend, Sabrina, goes missing. He goes to live with his old friend — an Air Force surveillance expert agent who is dealing with a failed marriage — when a grisly videotape is anonymously sent to news outlets and 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.

Goddard’s most recently penned, directed and produced Bad Times at the El Royale. He also serves as an executive producer of the NBC comedy series The Good Place, co-created The Defenders and created Daredevil.
