Working Title has picked up the rights to Delia Ephron’s novel SIRACUSA and tapped Me And Earl And The Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon to direct the project.
The project follows a marriage and the deceit involved as two couples and a child head for vacation in the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea in Italy. Penguin Books imprint Blue Rider Press will publish the novel in July.
Ephron will adapt her novel to script as well as executive produce. Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan, and Liza Chasin produce.
Gomez-Rejon most recently co-created and executive produced the TV series Citizen for Hulu.
Ephron is repped by CAA, Janklow & Nesbit Associates for publishing, and Authentic Talent And Literary Management.
Gomez-Rejon is repped by WME and LBI Entertainment.
