Selma Blair’s Production Company to Adapt Novel ‘The Lost’ Into Movie

VARIETY by Justin Kroll

Selma Blair and her production company, Sainted Productions, have purchased the rights to Sarah Beth Durst’s novel “The Lost.”

Durst’s book follows a woman running from her bleak life who finds herself trapped in a small town where all things lost — luggage, keys, and even people — are mysteriously deposited.

Blair is now looking for a writer to pen the movie and is undecided about whether she’ll also star in the pic. “The Lost” marks the first piece of IP that Sainted Productions has purchased.

It is also unknown at this time whether this will be adapted into a film or TV series.

Durst is an award-winning author who was honored with the Mythopoeic Award and Alex Award from the American Library Association.

Blair is best known for her roles in “Cruel Intentions,” “Legally Blonde,” and “Hellboy.” Most recently, her film “Mom and Dad,” co-starring Nicolas Cage, premiered at Midnight Madness at the Toronto Film Festival and earned her some of the best reviews of her career. She is also set to appear in TV Land’s “Heathers” reboot, which is currently filming.


‘Future-Worm!’ Gets Premiere Date On Disney XD; Selma Blair, Chelsea Peretti Among Guest Stars

Disney has set an August 1 premiere date for its new animated comedy adventure series Future-Worm!, and announced several guest stars including Neil deGrasse Tyson, Selma Blair, Jeff Ross, Jack McBrayer, Chelsea Peretti, Bill Nye and Jonathan Frakes.

Created and executive-produced by Emmy-winning director Ryan Quincy (South Park), Future-Worm! centers on Danny, played by Andy Milonakis, an optimistic 12-year-old who creates a time machine lunch box, and then meets and befriends a fearless worm (James Adomian) from the future (with titanium-enforced abs). The comedy follows Danny and Future Worm as they embark on adventures through space, time, and study hall. The characters were introduced last year in a popular “Future-Worm!” short-form series on Disney and Disney’s YouTube Channel.

Jessica DiCicco (Gravity Falls) also stars as Bug; Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men) as Danny’s mom, Megan Douglas; Ryan Quincy as Danny’s dad, Doug Douglas; and Corey Burton (Jake and the Never Land Pirates) as the Narrator.

Additional guests stars include Paul Williams, Noel Wells, David Koechner, Josh Brener and Andy Daly.

Each episode consists of an 11-minute story, a 3-minute story and a 7-minute story. Previews of the 3- and 7-minute story segments from the premiere episode will be available on the Disney app with the 3-minute also available on Disney’s YouTube Channel beginning Monday, July 11. Beginning August 1, episodes will air at 11 AM ET/PT on Disney.
