Michael Sarnoski, director of Pig, is set to write and direct an adaptation of Nick Drnaso’s graphic novel Sabrina.

Director Michael Sarnoski is expected to both write and direct an adaptation of Sabrina, a graphic novel by Nick Drnaso. The film will be produced by New Regency and RT Features, Deadline reports.

The graphic novel follows the story of a grieving man whose girlfriend, Sabrina, goes missing, as he goes to live with an old friend. This friend is an Air Force surveillance expert currently dealing with a failed marriage. Sabrina’s disappearance goes viral after gruesome video footage is sent to news outlets, and the two quickly become the targets of conspiracy theorists. Soon, both their sense of truth and their faith in each other is shaken.

This reportedly won’t be Sarnoski’s next project, as he’s also currently attached to direct the next instalment of the A Quiet Place franchise. The director’s career has taken off since helming the Nicolas Cage-starring Pig last year, which led to him receiving the National Board Of Review Award for Best Directorial Debut.

Sabrina was published in 2018, and was the first graphic novel to be long-listed for the Man Booker Prize.
