May 18 (UPI) -- The Office and Gone Baby Gone actress Amy Ryan is to star in the Netflix film adaptation of Robert Kolker's non-fiction book Lost Girls.

The project will mark documentarian Liz Garbus' narrative feature debut.

"The story, both a true-crime story and a strong character piece, follows Mari Gilbert as she relentlessly drives law enforcement agents to search for her missing daughter and in the process sheds light on a wave of unsolved murders of young female sex workers on the South Shore barrier islands of Long Island," a news release said.

Garbus' films include The Farm: Angola, USA, Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, Bobby Fischer Against the World, Love, Marilyn and What Happened, Miss Simone?
