“The Girl With All the Gifts” Is Getting a Film Adaptation Starring Glenn Close

Girl with All the Gifts

Last year’s near-perfect post-apocalyptic horror novel The Girl With All the Gifts (like all good and bad things) is being adapted into a film.

The adaptation — which is getting re-titled She Who Brings Gifts — will star Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton and Paddy Considine.

Even more exciting? The film will be directed by Colm McCarthy, who has worked on UK shows like “Peaky Blinders,” “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock.”

The story (which we read because Joss Whedon recommended it) follows a little girl named Melanie who lives inside a military bunker after the world is ravaged by the hungries and English citizens are fought to fight for humanity’s survival.

We’d tell you more about it, but we don’t want to spoil anything. It’s best to go into the book as blind as possible.
