Deadline is exclusively reporting that Alexandra Daddario is attached to executive produce and star in the leading role of the feature adaptation of Sophie Kinsella’s New York Times bestseller Can You Keep A Secret?
Alexandra Daddario (whose recent credits include The Layover and When We First Met) will be playing the role of Emma Corrigan, a girl with a few secrets. On a turbulent plane ride, thinking she’s about to die, Emma spills all her secrets to the handsome stranger sitting next to her. At least, she thought was a stranger. The man in question happens to be Jack Harper, her company’s young and elusive CEO, who arrives at the office and now knows every single humiliating detail about Emma.
Sophie Kinsella released a statement saying:
I’m absolutely thrilled that Can You Keep a Secret? is going to become a movie and I know my readers around the world will look forward to it just as much as I do. I am very excited that Alexandra Daddario is to play Emma and I can’t wait to see the story come alive on screen.
Sophie Kinsella’s novels have sold over 40m copies worldwide, with some of her best known being the Shopaholic series, with Confessions of a Shopaholic being adapted to the big screen back in 2009. Elise Duran will be directing the film, with Peter Hutchings adapting the novel. Claude Dal Farra, Brice Dal Farra and Brian Keady of BCDF Pictures will serve as producers on the project, with Charles Miller serving as executive producer alongside Daddario.
