‘Pig’ Filmmaker Michael Sarnoski To Direct ‘Sabrina’ Graphic Novel Adaptation

Following the legit critical acclaim for his directorial debut, Pig, Michael Sarnoski is very much in demand.Having already landed a plum gig directing the A Quiet Place spinoff, Sarnoski has also landed an adaptation of Nick Drnaso’s “fake news” graphic novel, Sabrina.

Published in 2018, Sabrina follows a “grieving man whose girlfriend goes missing and who goes to live with his old friend – an Air Force surveillance expert agent who is dealing with a failed marriage. After a grisly videotape is sent anonymously 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 vitriolic conspiracy theorists that threaten their sense of the truth and their faith in each other.”

Just a year after it was published, Drew Goddard was attached to write and produce another Sabrina adaptation, but nothing came of it.

Sarnoski will tackle A Quiet Place before moving forward on this.
