Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and his newly formed production company Ill Kippers has optioned YA novel We Are Lost & Found.
The coming of age book from author Helene Dunbar is set in the Big Apple of 1983, as the Reagan Era and the AIDS epidemic both begin for a trio of friends. The Julian Morris co-produced project will likely be primed for a big screen life, but a TV series is currently a possibility too.
Walder formed Ill Kippers with writer Joe Derrick and Jeffrey Chassen who will serve as VP and Head of Development, he had this to say to Deadline:
“Jeff and I have worked together for almost 10 years and there is a clear synergy between our tastes and ambitions. This is a brand new journey for all three of us but we all share the same work ethic, drive and passion for storytelling. When I learned that Jeff had chosen to leave the PR game I didn’t hesitate to offer him this new role and I was delighted when he accepted”
