Goddard is adapting the script with an eye to direct. “Sabrina,” published in 2018, became the first graphic novel to be long-listed for the prestigious Man Booker Prize. Rt Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira and New Regency’s Arnon Milchan are producing. New Regency will finance the project.
“Sabrina” follows a grieving man who goes to live with his old friend — an Air Force surveillance expert who is dealing with a failed marriage — when his girlfriend goes missing. After a grisly videotape is anonymously sent to news outlets, 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 conspiracy theorists that threaten their sense of the truth and their faith in each other.
