Drew Goddard will write and may direct an adaptation of Nick Drnaso’s graphic novel, Sabrina. Goddard will also produce the project alongside RT Features‘ Rodrigo Teixeira and New Regency‘s Arnon Milchan.
In Sabrina, when his girlfriend goes missing, a grieving man goes to live with his old friend – an Air Force surveillance expert agent who is dealing with a failed marriage. After a grisly videotape is anonymously sent to news outlets, Sabrina’s disappearance goes viral. As the 24-hour news cycle and social media take hold of the story, the two men are targeted by vitriolic conspiracy theorists that threaten their sense of the truth and their faith in each other.
Nick Drnaso’s award-winning graphic novel Sabrina was published in May 2018 by Drawn & Quarterly.
Goddard’s past credits include the TV series The Good Place, Daredevil, and The Defenders. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay for his work on The Martian. He most recently wrote, directed, and produced Bad Times at the El Royale, and before that wrote and directed The Cabin in the Woods.
