No One Goes Alone follows pioneering psychologist William James, a prominent member of the Society for Psychical Research, as he leads a team of researchers to the remote Isle of Dorn in 1905 to investigate the cause of several mysterious disappearances, most notably a family of four who vanished without a trace after a weeklong holiday on the island. Was the cause rooted in the physical world, or were there forces more mysterious and sinister at work? The idyllic setting belies an undercurrent of danger and treachery, with raging storms and unnerving discoveries adding to a growing sense of menace. As increasingly unexplainable events unfold, members of the isolated party are unsure whether they can trust their own eyes, their instincts, one another — or even themselves.
Keanu Reeves In Talks To Star In Hulu’s Series Adaptation Of ‘The Devil In The White City’ From Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Todd Field & Sam Shaw
Penguin Random House Audio released Larson’s first published work of fiction on September 28.
Larson is the author of eight nonfiction books, six of which became New York Times bestsellers. His latest books, The Splendid and the Vile: A Saga of Churchill, Family, and Defiance During the Blitz and Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, both hit No. 1 soon after launch. His saga of the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, The Devil in the White City, was a finalist for the National Book Award and won an Edgar Award for fact-crime writing. It lingered on various Times bestseller lists for the better part of a decade and this week.
Hulu is developing a limited-series adaptation of The Devil in the White City, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese as executive producers and the latter directing. Deadline reported exclusively this week that Keanu Reeves is in talks to star. The project originally was set up at Paramount as a feature.
Larson’s In the Garden of Beasts is set up as a feature film with StudioCanal & Playtone with Tom Hanks attached to star.
He is represented by UTA and The David Black Agency.
