Where The Crawdads Sing Release Date: Premiere Date, Cast, Teaser And Many More!
The novel that was a smashing success was adapted for the big picture by Reese Witherspoon’s production business.
Where the Crawdads Sing, which was written by Delia Owens and became a best-selling novel, will at long last be adapted for the big screen. Since its release, the novel that has garnered both critical and commercial praise has topped the best-sellers list in the New York Times and has been the most sold fiction book on Amazon for the year of 2019.
The murder mystery was first selected as a read for Reese’s Book Club in September 2018, and now Witherspoon has written her own adaptation of the novel. It is quite evident that Owens’ work has a loyal readership that is impatiently awaiting the day when the book will be adapted for theatrical release.
This article contains all of the information that we currently have for the Where the Crawdads Sing feature film.
Crawdads Movie Plot
“Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community.
Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.” According To Per Sony Pictures.
Crawdads Movie Release Date- Coming on 15 July, 2022
Along with the announcement that the film will be released this summer, Sony Pictures also provided some first-look photographs and a video (which can be viewed above), which features a brand-new song performed by Taylor Swift.
In the promotional video for the film, Kya can be heard saying, “Sometimes I feel so invisible, I wonder whether I’m here at all.”
The Teaser Includes a Clip of Taylor Swift’s “Carolina.”
“Where The Crawdads Sing is a book I got absolutely lost in when I read it years ago,” Swift wrote in an Instagram post. “As soon as I heard there was a film in the works starring the incredible @daisyedgarjones and produced by the brilliant @reesewitherspoon, I knew I wanted to be a part of it from the musical side. I wrote the song ‘Carolina’ alone and asked my friend @aarondessner to produce it. I wanted to create something haunting and ethereal to match this mesmerizing story.”
The entirety of the song is not yet accessible to be streamed online.
In the Spring of 2021, the Film Will Be Shot in Louisiana
On April 27, Sony Pictures posted a snapshot on their social media accounts that featured a clapboard and a copy of the book alongside the comment, “And thus it starts @CrawdadsMovie.” On her Instagram stories, actress Daisy Edgar-Jones provided a similar sneak peek for her followers. The film will shoot in several locations around the state of Louisiana, including New Orleans.

Hello Sunshine, the production firm founded by Reese Witherspoon, is behind the new film.
Witherspoon has achieved a great deal of success with her firm, Hello Sunshine, in addition to her work in front of the camera. The media organisation places an emphasis on presenting tales that feature women in both supporting roles and prominent roles within the narratives they produce. The movies Wild and Gone Girl, as well as the television programmes Big Little Lies, The Morning Show, and Little Fires Everywhere, were among the previous projects.
Given her spine-chilling performances in Gone Girl and Big Little Lies, Witherspoon is not a stranger to the genre of murder mysteries. Crawdads, on the other hand, will be an entirely unique experience due to the fact that the narrative will centre on a younger narrator and a coming-of-age story. Witherspoon described the movie as “one of those very wonderful possibilities that only come along once in a lifetime.”
The Movie Is Led by Women
Olivia Newman is going to direct the feature film, which will be her most ambitious endeavour to date. The filmmaker made her debut in the feature film industry with the 2018 Netflix sports drama First Match. She has also directed episodes of the television shows Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, and FBI.
Lucy Alibar, who is most known for co-writing the screenplay for the film Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012), is the one who is penning the script for this movie. Because of that screenplay, she was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Adapted Screenplay. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Newman will also have control on the narrative, but the degree to which this script will adhere to the original novel remains to be seen.
Daisy Edgar-Jones Will Star as Kya.
The primary role of the “Marsh Girl” at the centre of a murder investigation that takes place in 1969 North Carolina will be played by the star of the critically acclaimed series Normal People, which is now streaming on Hulu.
The remaining members of the cast are as follows: Taylor John Smith (Sharp Objects) will play the role of Tate Walker, Harris Dickinson (The King’s Man) will play the role of Chase Andrews, Michael Hyatt (Snowfall) will play the role of Mabel, Sterling Macer, Jr. (Double Down) will play Jumpin’, and David Strathairn (Nomadland) will play the role of Tom Milton.
