No this isn’t a sequel to Stephen King’s Carrie, The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind is a unique novel that has gained a lot of positivity by word-of-mouth and Deadline is reporting it’s going to be made into a television movie.
The work is penned by Jackson Ford, aka Rob Boffard, a Vancouver-based author.
Alex Kurtzman, the man behind such films as The Mummy, Sleepy Hollow, and Star Trek is working with CBS Television Studios now that he has picked up rights to the novel.
Although the story sounds familiar, it tells the story of a woman with telekinetic powers, it’s more of a “Alias meets X-Men in a grimy LA setting” according to author Maria Lewis.
The antagonist of The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind is Teagan Frost who is commissioned by the government to handle their nasty work. This is not a life goal, Frost wants to lead a life of Riley without focusing on her superhuman abilities.
“But then a body turns up at the site of her last job — murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She’s got 24 hours to clear her name – and it’s not just her life at stake. If she can’t unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that’s on the brink of exploding.”
Kurtzman and Heather Kadin will exec produce the project.
There is a sequel to the book called Random Sh*t Flying Through the Air scheduled for July 2020.
