Actress Sarah Paulson has been cast in the adaptation of The Goldfinch.
Variety reports that Paulson, after finishing up her work on American Horror Story for the season, will be looking to keep her busy schedule going by joining the cast of The Goldfinch.
The acclaimed book by Donna Tartt is being adapted by Warner Bros. and Amazon Studios with Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) on board to play Theo, Aneurin Barnard (Dunkirk) to play Boris, and with John Crowley directing.
The Goldfinch tells the story of Theodore Decker who, after surviving a terrorist bombing at an art museum, with his mother being killed, goes on an adventure that sees him involved in art forgeries and living with his deadbeat father in Las Vegas.
Paulson will play the character Xandra, who is the girlfriend of Theo’s father.
The Goldfinch is set to go into production at the beginning of 2018 with Warner Bros. distributing worldwide and Amazon getting the streaming rights.
