Luca Guadagnino to Direct Female-Led 'Lord of the Flies' for Warner Bros.
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ ... ium=socialGuadagnino is in talks to direct the feature from a script by Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet — the screenwriters behind titles like Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy and Tomb Raider.
William Golding's Lord of the Flies centers on a group of young, male boarding school students that end up stranded on an island and devolve into pre-pubescent savages over the course of the novel.
Guadagnino, Perlman and Robertson-Dworet will be taking over for Scott McGehee and David Siegel, who were previously set to write and direct the studio's take on the classic. When the project was first announced two years ago it faced backlash online being that the studio had tapped a male writing-directing team for what would be a female-led project.
