Stephanie Perkins’ There’s Someone Inside Your House is getting the adaptation treatment!

Deadline reports that Netflix and 21 Laps have officially acquired the rights to young adult novelist Stephanie Perkins’ New York Times best-selling thriller, There’s Someone Inside Your House.

Perkins’ book tells the story of a girl named Makani Young who is sent away from her home in Hawaii by her parents to go live with her grandmother in Nebraska.

Makani has done a fair job of adjusting to her new surroundings, but things take a turn when one by one, the students of her new high school suddenly start dying in a series of gruesome murders.

Billed as a slasher movie with a John Hughes-esque coming-of-age element, Netflix’s upcoming adaptation is set to be produced by Dan Cohen for Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps, and Michael Clear for James Wan’s Atomic Monster.

Both Levy and Wan’s production companies seem like a perfect fit for the tone of Perkins’ novel. Levy and 21 Laps have a great standing relationship with Netflix where they already produce the highly popular Stranger Things.

Meanwhile, Wan is a horror flick aficionado, having worked on such entities as The Conjuring and Saw.

Though the adaptation hasn’t settled on a director yet, the project has tapped Earth To Echo scribe Henry Gayden to pen the script.

Perkins took to Twitter to share the good news with her base of loyal readers in a series of tweets.

“Thank you @netflix (OMG NETFLIX!), Dan Cohen at @21LapsEnt, @HenryGayden, @ShawnLevyDirect, @creepypuppet, @DaphneUn, and especially Dana Spector (who I don’t think is on Twitter?) for this bananas crazy wonderful news. You guys are wonderful.” wrote Perkins.


In addition, the Anna and the French Kiss author also took a moment to thank her supportive fanbase for their excitement over the news.

“Thank you so much (SO MUCH) for all your kind words and excitement tonight. I’m sorry that I can’t reply directly to everyone,” tweeted Perkins. “I need to go call my mom and happy cry.”
