The studio has hired Marc Klein (“Serendipity”) to adapt the bestselling novel
“Serendipity” writer Marc Klein is set to adapt “The Lost Wife,” which is a romantic story of a young couple’s enduring love during and after World War II.
The two young lovers are separated during the Nazi invasion in pre-war Prague. Decades later and thousands of miles away, the two reconnect and explore both the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.
Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh will produce with Michelle Chydzik Sowa (“The Wedding Date”) and Jeff Waxman (“Out of the Furnace”), while Relativity’s Tucker Tooley will executive produce. Waxman co-produced “The Fighter” and he’s also a producer on Relativity’s upcoming reboot of “The Crow.”
Relativity executives Robbie Brenner and Becky Sanderman will oversee the project for the studio.
Klein, who also worked on the script for Relativity’s “Mirror Mirror,” is represented by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment.
Relativity’s upcoming releases include the Pierce Brosnan action movie “The November Man” on Aug. 27, the Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Best of Me” on Oct. 17 and the music-based drama “Beyond the Lights” on Nov. 14.
