Gillian Flynn Quotes

  • There’s something disturbing about recalling a warm memory and feeling utterly cold.
  • Tampon commercial, detergent commercial, maxi pad commercial, windex commercial – you’d think all women do is clean and bleed.
  • Love makes you want to be a better man—right, right. But maybe love, real love, also gives you permission to just be the man you are.
  • The face you give the world tells the world how to treat you.
  • A lot of people lacked that gift: knowing when to fuck off.
  • Sleep is like a cat: It only comes to you if you ignore it.

Gone Girl Author Gillian Flynn Is Doing a New Series for Amazon

Published: January 29, 2019

Amazon is getting into the Gillian Flynn business. It was announced that the studio will go ahead with Utopia, a drama from Flynn that is based on a British series of the same name. They’ve also signed an overall development deal with the Gone Girl author. Utopia has been green-lit for a nine-episode first season, in which a group of young adults end up in the crosshairs of an ominous deep-state organization, because they’ve obtained a supersecret and super-desirable graphic novel that may contain a vast real-world conspiracy in its pages. As you might expect, it will be up to them to save the world. As Variety reports, Flynn first approached HBO with Utopia back in 2014, and even had Gone Girl director David Fincher attached to direct and produce. Terms could apparently not be met regarding the budget, however, and the project fell into turnaround. But Flynn didn’t slip far out of HBO’s orbit, as her book Sharp Objects is being adapted into a mini-series for the network.
