Before we start giving HBO silent treatment to retain some of its new favorites until 2019, take a look at the new Sharp Objects . It is so creepy that it will make your hair stand on end before you finish the one minute clip, but it is so well produced that you will be asking for more anyway. No matter how terrified you are, you know you will see it. The limited series is starring Amy Adams and is based on a novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn, and will be released on the network in July, in just a few months. So you'll still have something to obsess over the long summer, while Game of Thrones and Big Little Lies are off the air.
That's the good news. The best news is that HBO has not fixed this new project. Like, literally, without bumps. For once, it's straight from the mind of Flynn, who also brought Gone Girl to life on the page, and guided him to the screen as well, when the story became a movie in 2014. ( The author wrote the script, which earned him an Academy Award nomination, so the fact that IMDb notes that he has a writing credit at Sharp Objects is also incredibly good for the quality of the writing of the series.)  But the genius does not stop there. There is almost no dialogue in progress, but it is still exciting from beginning to end, with rigid and visual scenes and disturbing images.
The bodies slide under the water, Adams examines a poster of Missing Persons, a young woman stands in the middle obscured in a window, a hand plays with a razor and dark drops come out of an object that seems coagulated with blood. And everything is backed by a series of light and tinkling notes that are somehow light, windy and ominous at the same time. "We have to talk about their daughters," warns a man with a mustache leaning on the couch with Patricia Clarkson, who plays the mother of Camille Preaker of Adams. "One of them is dangerous and one is in danger." And moments later, a low voice whispers: "It's not safe for you here," when Adams comes out panting from a bathtub. The entire body begins to tremble now.
Every moment of the breakthrough is perfectly produced to create a disturbing and disturbing quality, which is not a surprise when you take a look at the rest of the creative team. Because as mentioned, the awesomeness does not stop at Flynn. Also aboard Sharp Objects is the creator Marti Noxon, who served as executive producer of beloved series such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and UnREAL ; director Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed the first season of Big Little Lies; and producer Jason Blum, who also lent his talent to Get Out . It's a team so loaded with awards and nominations, it's almost ridiculous. Everyone has experience with their own version of the dark theme, be it vampires, abuse, racial injustice and more, and transforms them into captivating stories in a masterful way.
But even with the Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe nominations and win that the team has in their hands to enter Sharp Objects this latest project has been far from being a slap in the face. In fact, it has been under construction for years; the book was an option in 2011, Adams was not linked until February 2016, the additional cast was gradually diluted, like Chris Messina, which was added in March 2017, and now, more than two years later, the fans are finally getting your first look. 19659002]. It has been a long way to go, but if this advance is an indication, Sharp Objects has been worth the wait. So far, he promises to be nervous as much as emotion, and should serve as a more than adequate replacement for BLL and GoT while the fans await his return.
