Deadline is reporting that The Flash director Andy Muschietti and his producing partner, and sister, Barbara are teaming up on an adaption of The Final Girl Support Group for HBO Max.

Based on New York Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix’s horror novel of the same name, the project originally hails from Oscar winner Charlize Theron and her Denver & Delilah Films company. Also producing alongside The Muschietti’s Double Dream is Aperture Entertainment.

The novel’s title refers to a Los Angeles–based therapeutic support group for six “final girls”— survivors of mass-murderer rampages whose experiences inspired the slasher franchises that saturated horror cinema in the 1980s and ’90s, earning them minor celebrity. Hendrix’s novel was released Tuesday, July 13 by Random House/Berkley.

The trade understands that Andy Muschietti is set to direct the pilot episode of the series. Theron, AJ Dix, Beth Kono and Andrew Haas will executive produce for Denver & Delilah Films, along with Barbara and Andy Muschietti and Irene Yeung for Double Dream and Adam Goldworm for Aperture Entertainment. Hendrix also will serve as an executive producer.

No news yet on when the series is set to premiere.
