EVELYN HUGO to be Adapted by Liz Tigelaar for Netflix

Thu Mar 24, 2022

Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is being turned into a Netflix movie with Little Fires Everywhere creator Liz Tigelaar adapting.

The book, which has recently spent 54 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller Paperback list, four years after publishing, and has turned into a TikTok book phenomenon, follows reclusive Hollywood legend Evelyn Hugo, who chooses an unknown reporter, Monique Grant, to tell her life story. Evelyn recounts her time in the Golden Age of Hollywood, her rise to fame, and her seven marriages — revealing stunning secrets and lies. But through it all one question remains: Why has she chosen Monique for her final confession?

Producing the project are Liza Chasin for 3Dot Productions and Brad Mendelsohn for Circle of Confusion. The feature project continues Netflix’s creative partnership with Chasin and 3Dot. EPs are Reid and Margaret Chernin.
