Glenn Close Joins Mike Carey's She Who Brings Gifts

GiftsLucifer, Hellblazer and X-Men: Legacy scribe Mike Carey has adapted his own 2014 novel The Girl With All The Gifts (written under the name M.R. Carey) for a film to be directed by Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders, Sherlock). This will be McCarthy's first feature directing and he's got quite the cast to work with as Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine and Glenn Close are all on board.

The film/novel is about a very intelligent and normal little girl who lives in an underground bunker with other children her age. The children are all being observed and examined by scientists to find a cure for a fungal spore that has infected the planet.

The film will be called She Who Brings Gifts… perhaps to keep it from being confused with the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series.
