'Euphoria' Director Augustine Frizzell Tackling Jojo Moyes Love Story (Exclusive)
StudioCanal is behind the feature adaptation of 'The Last Letter From Your Lover.'
Augustine Frizzell — the director behind the pilot of HBO's hit show Euphoria — has come aboard to direct the feature film adaptation of Jojo Moyes' The Last Letter From Your Lover.
Moyes' story is a dual narrative that takes place in two different timelines. In 1960, Jennifer Stirling wakes in the hospital and remembers nothing, but finds an impassioned letter, signed simply "B," from a man for whom she seemed willing to risk everything. In 2003, journalist Ellie Haworth stumbles upon the letter and becomes obsessed with learning the unknown lovers’ fate.
A casting search is currently underway for the leading women.
Nick Payne wrote the latest version of the screenplay.
The project has been in development for a while, and is now set up at production company Blueprint. French producer-distributor StudioCanal is backing the project.
Another adaptation of a Moyes novel, the Emilia Clarke-starring Me Before You, proved to be a sleeper success in 2016, earning over $200 million at the global box office.
Frizzell made her feature directorial debut with the critically well-received indie comedy Never Goin' Back, and gained notices for helming the pilot of the envelope-pushing Euphoria, which stars Zendaya. She also directed episodes of the second season of Starz's Sweetbitter.
Frizzell is repped by WME.
