The Zookeeper’s Wife Slated For Adaptation


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.
