Rashida Jones brings her graphic novels to the big screen
Rashida Jones, who stars on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, is bringing her graphic novel miniseries Frenemy of the State to the big screen, according to Variety. Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have bought rights to the project, which centers on a young heiress who works undercover for the CIA.
“It’s intended for a girl much younger than me, about age 20, an interesting age for girls as they make that scary jump to adulthood,” Jones told Variety. “There is a comic element to it, this girl who is so conscious of social standing and wearing the right shoes, suddenly becoming responsible for these dangerous, life-threatening missions.”
