The planned film adaptation of Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow has found its director, Deadline reports.

Siân Heder will helm the movie based on Zevin’s bestselling novel. Heder wrote for the series Orange Is the New Black before writing and directing the films Tallulah and CODA; the latter won three Academy Awards, including best picture and best adapted screenplay.

Zevin’s novel, published in 2022 by Knopf, follows three friends who develop a hit video game. In a starred review, a critic for Kirkus wrote of the book, “Sure to enchant even those who have never played a video game in their lives, with instant cult status for those who have.” The novel was a New York Times bestseller, a Goodreads Choice Award winner, and a pick for Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon’s book club.

Plans for the film adaptation of the novel, produced by Paramount Pictures and Temple Hill Entertainment, were announced almost a year and a half before the book was published.

The screenplay will be written by Mark Bomback (War for the Planet of the Apes, The Art of Racing in the Rain), working from a draft by Zevin, who will be among the film’s executive producers.

Michael Schaub is a contributing writer.
