Lake Bell to helm “The Emperor’s Children” novel adaptation

PanARMENIAN.Net - Lake Bell has scored her second directing gig following “In a World,” signing on for New York City story “The Emperor’s Children”, Variety reported.

Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins are producing the adaptation of the Claire Messud novel. Noah Baumbach is writing the script.

The novel, published in 2006, centers on a trio of entitled but unsuccessful NYC residents in their late 20s who orbit the life of a famous journalist in the months before and after the events of 9/11.

“In A World,” which Bell wrote and starred in along with directing, premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. She was also nominated for an Indie Spirit Award for best first screenplay.

Bell will next be seen in “The Coup” opposite Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnan for The Weinstein Co. and in “Man Up” opposite Simon Pegg.
