The rights to the film were acquired by Maven Pictures, and other than Amy Adams set to produce and star in the film, nothing else has been confirmed. Maven Pictures has now signed Ned Benson to the project, he will write the film-adaptation of the popular book. The project is led by a trio (Adams, Trudie Styler and Celine Ratray from Maven Pictures) who launched the project in 2012.
