Posted on

The Reader director Stephen Daldry will helm Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, the film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s 9/11-centric novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film, which will be produced by Scott Rudin and released by Paramount and Warner Bros., follows a nine-year-old boy who searches NYC for a lock that matches a key left behind by his father, a victim of the 9/11 attacks. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button scribe Eric Roth will pen the screenplay.
