An all-girls Lord of the Flies movie is in development, written and directed by men



  • If you're British, Canadian or American you may remember Lord of the Flies as the book you were forced to read at some point during high school English about a group of young school boys who are stranded after their airplane crashes and try to form a makeshift society only for it to quickly descend into tribalistic hell

  • WB has decided to gender swap the characters to make it about girls

  • They have hired male duo Scott McGehee and David Siegel to write and direct following a disconcerting trend of Hollywood remaking all-male movies with women but hiring men to write, direct and crew the movie

  • The duo last directed What Maisie Knew
