Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Blake Lively is set to star in an adap­ta­tion of the best­seller “The Hus­band’s Se­cret,’’ from “Big Lit­tle Lies’’ au­thor Liane Mo­ri­arty. CBS Films said Thurs­day that Lively will play Ce­cilia Fitz­patrick in the film and also ex­ec­u­tive pro­duce.

The char­ac­ter is a model wife and mother who dis­cov­ers an un­opened let­ter from her hus­band that says to open only in the case of his death. The cu­rios­ity and even­tual rev­e­la­tion sends her life into a spi­ral.

Mo­ri­arty’s books are be­com­ing a fix­ture in Hol­ly­wood. Her book “Big Lit­tle Lies’’ was adapted into a pop­u­lar HBO minis­eries that ended its run re­cently. The pro­lific Australian au­thor also has a number of books be­ing op­tioned for big and small screen adap­ta­tions.
