Sharp Objects is coming to the small screen as a limited series. And from the looks of it, it’s going to be an intense ride. The novel on which the series is based was written by Gillian Flynn, the woman behind Gone Girl. And Sharp Objects promises to be equally unsettling, telling the story of a reporter who returns to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
