Augustine Frizzell (Never Goin ‘Back, The last letter from your lover) must instruct a feature film adaptation of VE Schwab‘s fantasy novel Addie LaRue’s Invisible Life. She has to direct the film based on a script written by her husband David Lowery, who has written and directed films such as The Green Knight and Petes drage. Schwab will produce the film.
Addie LaRue’s Invisible Life follows a young woman who, in a moment of desperation, “makes a Faustian trade to live forever. But it comes with a price as she is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
The story is described as “a dazzling adventure that will unfold across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to make her mark on the world.” Everything changes for the woman after nearly 300 years, when “Addie encounters a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.”
It sounds like a fascinating story that will yield a great movie! I’m not really familiar with Frizzell’s work, but with Lowery writing the script, we at least know it’s going to be solid!
