A star has been cast for the TV series Utopia, which author Gillian Flynn is adapting for Amazon.
Flynn, whose novels Gone Girl and Sharp Objects have blown up big and small screens as well as book-sales lists, is the sole creator, an executive producer, and the showrunner for the series.
She told the Hollywood Reporter that actress Sasha Lane kept popping into her mind for character Jessica Hyde as she worked on scripts.
Utopia is based on a British series of the same name. It follows a group of young adults who meet online and are hunted by a shadowy deep state organization, according to the Reporter.
