Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal Look to Break My Heart 1,000 Times


Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, the writers/directors of this Friday’s The Words, have signed on to direct Break My Heart 1,000 Times. The Hollywood Reporter has the news, saying that the pair will direct the adaptation of the forthcoming Daniel Waters novel, officially described as follows:

Living in the aftermath of the Event means that seeing the dead is now a part of life, but Veronica wishes that the ghosts would just move on. Instead, the ghosts aren’t disappearing — they’re gaining power.

When Veronica and her friend, Kirk, decide to investigate why, they stumble upon a more sinister plot than they ever could have imagined. One of Veronica’s high school teachers is crippled by the fact that his dead daughter has never returned as a ghost, and he’s haunted by the possibility that she’s waiting to reappear within a fresh body. Veronica seems like the perfect host. And even if he’s wrong, what’s the harm in creating one more ghost?

Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) adapted the screenplay for the project but Klugman and Sternthal are planning on doing a quick rewrite as well.
