A book is considered a success when it is added to the list of favorites by actress Reese Witherspoon, and this is certainly true in the case of Delia Owen’s Where the Crawdads Sing, which Witherspoon has included on her list of favorite books. The coming-of-age novel spent nearly two years on the New York Times bestsellers list, and it’s easy to see why after devouring every chapter of this compelling novel.
It goes without saying that when it was announced that the novel would be made into a film, fans were overjoyed. It was chosen as one of Reese’s Book Club selections, and the actress possesses an impressive eye for literature that has the potential to become a classic. In addition to Big Little Lies and Little Fires Everywhere, she has had two novels made into films, Daisy Jones & The Six and Where the Crawdads Sing, which is both on everyone’s reading lists these days.

New Taylor Swift Song In Where The Crawdads Sing Trailer
The new trailer for “Where the Crawdads Sing,” a thriller that will be released in theatres on July 15, has been released by Sony. Adapted from Delia Owens’ novel of the same name, the film follows Kya (Daisy Edgar-Jones), a young woman from the marshes of North Carolina who becomes a suspect in the murder of a man with whom she had a romantic relationship.
“I fell head over heels in love with the world that Delia created; her writing has a poetic quality to it.” Also, “Her characters are so incredibly special, as well as deep and complex — particularly Kya, of course,” said Edgar-Jones in a promotional video for the film posted on “Where the Crawdads Sing’s” Instagram account in February. “Kya is someone I would describe as fiercely resilient, wonderfully curious, and extremely strong. And I’m overjoyed and honoured to be given the opportunity to portray her.”
Kya’s friend Tate is played by Taylor John Smith, and Chase is played by Harris Dickinson, who plays the murdered ex-lover who, before his death, lied to Kya about their relationship and then attacked her after she tried to end things with him. David Strathairn (“Nightmare Alley”), Garret Dillahunt (“The Mindy Project”), Ahna O’Reilly (“The Help”), and Michael Hyatt (“The Little Things”) are also among the cast members.
The film’s producers include Reese Witherspoon, who chose Owens’ novel for her book club in 2018. Witherspoon is also a producer on the film. “Where the Crawdads Sing” was also produced by Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine production company, which also produced 3000 images for the film. Lucy Alibar wrote the screenplay for this film. Olivia Newman is in charge of the direction.
