Anonymous Content Adapting Ryan La Sala Social Horror Novel ‘The Honeys’ Into Film

Anonymous Content is reportedly developing Ryan La Sala‘s bestselling social horror novel The Honeys for a big screen adaptation. The book follows a queer teen named Mars, who is investigating the connection between his twin sister Caroline’s violent death and the Honeys, a group of beautiful, otherworldly girls who she boarded with at her exclusive summer camp.

As Mars probes into who — or what — the Honeys really are, he’s surprised to find them inviting him into their world. But he discovers they’re guarding a dark and sickeningly sweet secret in the meadows behind their cabin that could cost him everything.

The novel was published in August 2022 and named a best book of 2022 by NPR, the New York Public Library, School Library Journal, Barnes & Noble, and Publishers Weekly. Those kinds of accolades will usually get Hollywood interested.

David Levine and Garrett Kemble will oversee the project for Anonymous Content’s AC Studios. La Sala himself will serve as an executive producer. His other novels, Reverie and Be Dazzled, also focus on surreal things happening to queer people. His next book, Beholder, is scheduled to be released later this year.

There are no further details regarding the adaptation right now, but it should have plenty of creatives interested in being involved.

Other projects Anonymous Content are developing under their AC Studios banner include sci-fi thriller Foe with Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal, a limited series adaptation of East of Eden starring Florence Pugh.

They are also developing eight-part psychological drama Saint X from director Dee Rees, Taika Waititi‘s Time Bandits starring Lisa Kudrow, and Season 4 of True Detective starring Jodie Foster.
