Blake Lively will star in the film adaptation of the “Big Little Lies” author’s other book “The Husband’s Secret”

Attention, fans of Big Little Lies! Author Liane Moriarty has another book being adapted for the screen, The Husband’s Secret, and it will star Blake Lively. In case you missed the literal perfect season of television that was Big Little Lies, you should really catch up on what is probably the best show on HBO (bye forever, Game of Thrones) in order to appreciate what an exciting prospect this is. CBS Films President Terry Press said in a statement:

“Liane Moriarty has established herself as one of the defining voices of the modern woman, and Blake Lively’s unique combination of vulnerability, strength, and extraordinary talent makes her the perfect actress to realize Moriarty’s creation."

So YEAH. Get excited, because on top of great source material already proven to translate well to the screen — we’re talkin’ some modern day Jane Austen vibes, people — it’s going to star Blake Lively, who we’ve loved ever since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

The novel is about a woman who inadvertently discovers a secret that her husband has been keeping from her for years. We don’t want to read too deeply into the summary in case of spoilers, but it sounds like we can expect the same suspense, complexity of relationships, and y’know, good ol’ fashioned ~murder~ that Big Little Lies gave us.

Now all there is to do is wait for what’s destined to be our next favorite movie.
