We have good news to report, Netflix Lifers! Netflix is in the process of developing a movie adaptation of the psychological thriller novel None of This Is True by New York Times best-selling British novelist Lisa Jewell, and we're here to share everything we know about it so far.

After a competitive bidding situation, Netflix managed to come out on top and secured rights to the 2023 book. Eleanor Burgess, who is known for writing multiple episodes of the period drama series Perry Mason, has signed on to write the screenplay, while fashion model, actress, and producer Molly Sims will be producing through her multimedia production company, Something Happy Productions. The entertainment company Modern Magic is also attached to produce. Jewell will be executive producing, while Gaby McCormick will be co-producing via Modern Magic. As of June 4, neither a director nor any actors have signed on to the thriller film.

Originally published back in July 2023, None of This True centers around a popular podcast host named Alix Summer. While out celebrating her 45th birthday at a local bar, she meets a mysterious woman named Josie Fair, who she finds out is her birthday twin. But not only do they share the same birthday. They're the same age and were also born in the same hospital on the same day. A few days later, Alix crosses paths with Josie again, but this time outside her kids' school.

Alix has hit a creative roadblock with her podcast, and at Josie's suggestion, she decides to use her as her new subject and tell her life story on her podcast. But as Alix hears more of Josie's story, she starts to realize that Josie has been hiding some very dark secrets, and before she knows it, she finds her life becoming intertwined with Josie's in very dangerous ways.

If you would like to purchase this book, you can do so on Amazon as a paperback ($23.99 before taxes), hardcover ($15.00 before taxes), or an eBook ($14.99 before taxes). The paperback version is not available just yet. It will be released on July 10, 2024, but you can pre-order it on Amazon.

This is all we know about the None of This Is True feature adaptation as of right now. We'll come back and share new information as it is released. So, stay tuned to Netflix Life!
