The Hollywood Reporter dropped exclusive news that has us on the edge of our seats. Paramount has optioned the rights to bring the role-playing game Alice is Missing to the big screen. They have tapped Becca Gleason to serve as director and co-write the adaptation. Gleason just brought the YA series The Summer I Turned Pretty to life for Amazon Studios. She is joined by the game’s designer Spenser Starke who will also serve as co-writer. Temple Hill will be producing the series alongside Gleason as well.
Alice is Missing began as an immersive and silent RPG (role-playing game) that is played entirely through text messages. It follows the disappearance of Alice Briarwood, a high school junior from Silent Falls. Players take on the roles of her friends, family and fellow town members as they attempt to uncover the truth. It started off as a Kickstarter whose popularity skyrocketed it to win awards. But it doesn’t stop there. It has a strong fandom that continues to generate stories and additional content within the game’s world.
We are excited to see just how Gleason and Starke will bring Alice is Missing to the big screen. How will they incorporate the text message-based gameplay for which the RPG is known? And will there be twists and turns for those who already know the whole story? If you have not tried the original game, we highly suggest it. More information and ways to play can be found on Hunters Entertainment’s website.
Now that Alice is Missing‘s film adaptation is out of the bag, we can’t wait to hear more! Who will be joining the cast, and when can we expect it to release? Things are still in the early stages, so it’s time for us to embrace some patience. Starke took to Twitter to share how excited he is, and we want to know how excited you are. Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
So unbelievably excited to announce that Alice Is Missing is officially in development as a movie at Paramount, and I’m writing the script with the brilliant Becca Gleason. A literal dream come true. https://t.co/2LjBOTww9R
