Deadline reported, LD Entertainment is set to adapt Everything I Never Told You by author Celeste Ng. Michael De Luca (The Social Network) is attached to produce while Julia Cox (The Last Tycoon) will write the script.
Everything I Never Told You is originally published by Penguin Press in 2014.
The story follows a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. The plot will unravel the mysterious death of their teenage daughter Lydia, whose body was found in the local lake.
A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
