Everyone has been waiting for the upcoming thriller ‘Where The Crawdads Sing‘ after loving the book, which was featured in Oprah’s bookclub. The novel was a huge success. It has sold over 12 million copies, making it one of the best selling books of all time.
And now Hollywood is hoping to get a taste of that success. This movie stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Harris Dickinson.
Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.
The studio is taking a chance by releasing this project in the middle of summer, going up against some pretty huge blockbuster films. It’s currently set to hit theaters on July 15, 2022, which will have it battling out Thor: Love and Thunder and Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror flick, Nope, the following week.
