Universal Pictures Picks Up 'Little Girl Lost'
Jonathan Levine is attached to serve as a helmer while Michael Bacall is tapped to adapt the hard-boiled crime novel into a screenplay.


Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to "Little Girl Lost", a hard-boiled crime novel by Richard Aleas. The studio is currently developing the big screen version, which is also titled "Little Girl Lost", with Michael Bacall ("Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") on board to write the script.

Universal has additionally tapped Jonathan Levine ("All the Boys Love Mandy Lane", "The Wackness") to work behind the camera. Meanwhile, Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Mason Novick are teaming up to produce the drama thriller, which has yet to get release date. No actor is cast for the drama thriller either.

Published by Hard Case Crime, "Little Girl Lost" is a story of a private investigator who learns that his high school girlfriend has become a stripper and is now dead. He then journeys to the seedy side to find the man responsible. This book was followed by a sequel, "Songs of Innocence".
