Seven husbands, one best-selling book and now a feature film!
On March 24, Netflix confirmed to E! News that an adaptation of Taylor Jenkens Reid‘s addictive 2017 novel The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is in the works.
According to the streaming giant’s official synopsis: “Reclusive Hollywood legend Evelyn Hugo chooses an unknown reporter, Monique Grant, to tell her life story. Evelyn recounts her time in the Golden Age of Hollywood, her rise to fame, and her seven marriages—revealing stunning secrets and lies.
