Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has scored a major deal to adapt her successful book, “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” for the big screen.
Deadline reports that the “Lean In” film will not be biographical and will instead have a narrative “hatched” from the book’s themes.
This book-to-feature route is not unusual for bestselling nonfiction books these days.
Though it is sure to be different in tone, it follows adaptations like Steve Harvey’s “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” and “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”
Several of these projects have been successful, with “Think Like a Man Too” already on its way.
Little else is known about the project at this point, though it was snapped up by Sony Pictures and will be written by Nell Scovell (“Charmed”).
