The project joins fellow company team-up Sofia Coppola's 'On the Rocks.'

Apple has announced the second feature that will be produced under its pact with indie studio A24 — an adaptation of young adult novel The Sky Is Everywhere.

Josephine Decker, the director behind Sundance standout Madeline’s Madeline, will helm, while author Jandy Nelson will adapt her own story for the screen.

The story centers on American high school girl Lennie Walker, as she works through the loss of her sister and accidentally falls in love. 

Decker will also produce, along with Denise Di Novi and Margaret French Isaac for Di Novi Pictures.

The Sky Is Everywhere will fall under the multiyear agreement that the tech giant inked with the New York-based A24, which was announced in November 2018. Under the pact, the studio behind Moonlight will produce a slate of multiple films for Apple, beginning with the Sofia Coppola and Bill Murray father-daughter feature On the Rocks

Decker recently directed Elisabeth Moss thriller Shirley. Decker is repped by Paradigm, which brokered the deal and packaged the project, as well as Gary Ungar and Gang Tyre.
