Author Jessica Knoll is adapting the screenplay for Luckiest Girl Alive, based on her 2015 New York Times bestselling novel of the same name for Netflix. The novel has sold over a million copies and been translated into 38 different languages. Mila Kunis (Bad Moms, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan) has signed on to star.
Directed by Mike Barker (Black Match, The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo), Luckiest Girl Alive centers on Ani FaNelli, a sharp-tongued New Yorker who appears to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a killer wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon. But when the director of a crime documentary invites her to tell her side of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to unravel her meticulously crafted life.
Knoll, Lisa Sterbakov for Orchard Farm Productions, Shayne Fiske Goldner for PICTURESTART, and Steve Hutensky for Made Up Stories will executive produce. Bruna Papandrea and Jeanne Snow for Made Up Stories; Erik Feig and Lucy Kitada for PICTURESTART; and Mila Kunis for Orchard Farm Productions will serve as producers.
