BuzzFeed shares a round-up of creepy reads for October.

The film adaptation of Donna Tartt’s “The Goldfinch” has found its Theo: the lead role in the movie has been offered to “Baby Driver” star Ansel Elgort, Variety reports.

Speculation about the cast of “The Goldfinch” has been rampant since 2104, when Warner Bros. bought the film rights.

Okey dokey.

Fox has given a script commitment plus penalty to The Dime — a crime drama with a lesbian cop at the center — based on bestselling author Kathleen Kent’s new novel, from Hell on Wheels creators Tony Gayton and Joe Gayton, feature director Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) and 20th Century Fox TV.

Ohhh this is exciting!
