Emily V. Gordon has been tapped to write the feature adaption of Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s The Nest.
Gordon will pen the movie for Amazon Studios, which released her last feature The Big Sick, which just earned the scripter an Oscar nom for best original screenplay.
The New York Times best-seller follows the dysfunctional Plumb family. After years of simmering tensions that finally reach a boiling point, Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, whose actions have endangered the family trust fund.
Transparent creator Jill Soloway will produce via her Topple banner, along with Andrea Sperling. Carly Kahane will exec produce.
Gordon, who co-wrote The Big Sick with her husband, Kumail Nanjiani, has also written for The Carmichael Show and HBO half-hour Crashing. She is repped by UTA, Mosaic and law firm Schreck Rose.
