Scribe to relive his 'Ten Best Days'
Josh Klausner adapting novel for Amy Adams to star inJosh Klausner as been tapped to adapt Adena Halpern's novel "The Ten Best Days of My Life," which Fox is developing as a starring vehicle for Amy Adams and possible directing vehicle for Shawn Levy.
The book centers on a woman who dies and goes to the top of the afterlife echelon -- called, what else, Seventh Heaven -- but is in danger of being demoted to a lower level unless she can prove having lived a worthwhile life by recounting her 10 best days.
The novel was published in May 2008 by Penguin, and Fox picked up rights that year.
Adams is making her debut as a producer on the project. Levy is producing via his 21 Laps banner.
Klausner worked as a second unit director on several Farrelly brothers comedies before moving into writing. He penned Fox's upcoming "Date Night," which Levy directed, and co-wrote the DreamWorks Animation sequel "Shrek Forever After."
The ICM-repped Klausner also is working on a script based on Thomas the Tank Engine.
