Just a few weeks ago my entire Facebook was filled with the latest on the Big Little Lies mini series. I loved reading Big Little Lies and then devoured all of these:
I absolutely love each book. In fact I got The Last Anniversary on Audible and listened to it while driving all over NC last week for vacation. It was so good that Charlie and Steve were even hooked and asking how it ends. I finished it today but if they want to know, they’re going to have to read the book. The Husband’s Secret follows the same set up as Big Little Lies. In other words there’s a climax at the beginning of the book and we go back and forth between present day and the events leading up to the climax. I love this style because it makes me focus more on the book.Now I’ve learned that Blake Lively Stars in The Husband’s Secret!
CBS Films announced that Blake Lively (The Shallows, The Age of Adeline) will executive produce and star in the theatrical motion picture adaptation of THE HUSBAND’S SECRET. Based on the acclaimed bestselling novel by Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies) the adaptation is being produced by Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Andrew Miano via their Depth of Field production shingle along with Lively.
“Liane Moriarty has established herself as one of the defining voices of the modern woman and Blake Lively’s unique combination of vulnerability, strength and extraordinary talent makes her the perfect actress to realize Moriarty’s creation,” commented Terry Press, President, CBS Films. Lively will play Cecilia Fitzpatrick, a busy wife, mother and chronic perfectionist who inadvertently discovers that her husband has been keeping a secret from her for years…a secret that leads her to realize that her life is built on a foundation of lies and murder.
THE HUSBAND’S SECRET was published by Amy Einhorn Books and quickly became a #1 New York Times Bestseller. WME, Justin Grey Stone at Management 360 and attorney Jeff Bernstein at Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein represent Blake Lively. Jerry Kalajian of Intellectual Property Group, Fiona Inglis Curtis Brown Australia and Faye Bender represent Moriarty. Mark Ross and Alex Ginno are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
