Scion Films, the production company behind The Constant Gardener, has purchased the rights to Diane Ackerman's bestselling book, The Zookeeper's Wife with plans to turn it into a feature film, reports Variety.

The book, published in 2007, tells the true story of Jan and Antonina Zabinski, two zookeepers in Warsaw, who turned the place into a safe haven for Jews during the holocaust.

The script is currently planned for adaptation by Angela Workman, author of the upcoming Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.
