Kaufman, who most just lately directed Netflix film ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’, will adapt the script from the e book
Filmmakers Reed Morano and Charlie Kaufman are becoming a member of arms for the characteristic movie adaptation of Yoko Ogawa novel “The Memory Police.”
The challenge, which hails from Amazon Studios, can be helmed by Morano, who’s finest identified for guiding Hulu’s Emmy-winning collection “The Handmaid’s Tale”, reported Deadline.
Kaufman, who most just lately directed Netflix film “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”, will adapt the script from the e book.
The Japanese novel was initially revealed in 1994. Its English translation was launched in 2019 by Pantheon Books.
“On an unnamed island off an unnamed coast, things have begun to disappear — at first little things: ribbons and then roses. Soon, photographs. However, a rare few are able to remember all that no longer exists, but the Memory Police are determined to make sure that what has been erased, remains forgotten forever.
“When a young novelist realises her book editor is one of those able to still remember, she hides him in a room beneath her floorboards. As the world closes in around them, they struggle defiantly to hold onto the truth,” the official logline learn.
Morano most just lately made her characteristic directorial debut with Blake Lively-starrer “The Rhythm Section”. She is at the moment working on Amazon collection “The Power“.
Kaufman has previously written critically-acclaimed movies such as “Being John Malkovich” (1999), “Adaptation” (2002), and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004), which earned him an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.
