The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ We might get a Manson Girls film after all...

Honey Buzz ~ We might get a Manson Girls film after all...

There's been some chatter in recent months about a Manson Family themed film that I was getting excited for called Manson Girls, which was rumored to have Bill Moseley as Charlie himself...but, since we've recently heard that's not to be, it's ok for me to get a little bit excited about this next piece of news from Deadline:



A prolific producer of some serious Hollywood hits, Scott Rudin, has acquired The Girls, a novel by Emma Cline. The Girls takes place in the combustible summer of 1969, where a 14-year old named Evie lives in boredom in Marin County. The product of recently divorced parents, she is restless and unable to get much attention from either of them. She befriends and falls into an accidental friendship with an older and beguiling drifter named Suzanne. The young girl is soon sucked into the turbulent counterculture waters of what is to become an infamous commune, run by a charismatic madman named Charlie. Evie quickly finds herself under his power and closer than she knows to unthinkable violence. The Girls is a meditation on how power is lost when one looks to find it in others and surrenders free will to them, and how far some will go for a sense of counting for something.


Can't lie, I'll be looking forward to this one.
