Blake Lively To Direct New Searchlight Pictures Film “Seconds”
Disney’s Searchlight Pictures is developing a new adaptation of the graphic novel, “Seconds”, which was created by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley.
“Seconds,” tells the story of Katie Clay, who receives the power to fix her past mistakes via writing them down in a notebook, eating a mushroom and falling asleep. Clay becomes too eager to fix every little aspect of her life, and before long, her newfound ability begins to create new problems that threaten not only to take her further and further from the life she initially had but the very fabric of time and space itself.
According to THR, Blake Lively will be making her directorial debut with “Seconds”. She has previously directed Taylor Swift’s music video for “I Bet You Think About Me” and has previously acted in the popular TV series, “Gossip Girl”.
Edgar Wright, who worked on the “Scott Pilgrim” film, has adapted the graphic novel into a script, plus he will be a producing, along with Marc Platt.
No release date has yet been confirmed, nor has it been confirmed if it will be released in cinemas first or will be released directly onto Disney’s streaming service.
