Warner Bros is adapting William Golding's iconic novel "Lord of the Flies" for the big screen.
Scott McGehee and David Siegel will write and direct the project, which follows a group of young boarding school students that end up stranded on an island, reported Deadline.
However, there is one major twist in the movie adaptation: the students stranded on a remote island will be girls.
"We want to do a very faithful but contemporized adaptation of the book, but our idea was to do it with all girls rather than boys.
"It is a timeless story that is especially relevant today, with the interpersonal conflicts and bullying, and the idea of children forming a society and replicating the behavior they saw in grownups before they were marooned", Siegel said.
The book was most famously turned into a film in 1963 by Peter Brook.
