Deadline has reported Alexandra Daddario (Baywatch) will soon be starring in and executive producing an adaptation of Sophie Kinsella’s novel, Can You Keep A Secret?. The film will be directed by Elise Duran (Finding Sarah), who will also be an executive producer alongside Daddario.
Daddario will play Emma Corrigan, a girl with a few secrets. On a turbulent plane ride, thinking she’s about to die, Emma spills them all to the handsome stranger sitting next to her. At least, she thought he was a stranger. But then Jack Harper, her company’s young and elusive CEO, arrives at the office. It’s him. And he knows every single humiliating detail about Emma.
“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,” Kinsella said. “I am very excited that Alexandra Daddario is to play Emma and I can’t wait to see the story come alive on screen.”
The book was adapted by Peter Hutchings (The Outcasts) while Claude Dal Farra, Brice Dal Farra, and Brian Keady will produce for BCDF Pictures. Charles Miller will also executive produce alongside Daddario and Duran.
Kinsella’s best known works is the Shopaholics series, which was previously adapted to film with Confessions of a Shopaholic in 2009. Can You Keep A Secret? has sold over 4 million copies worldwide.
