Deadline reports that ‘Terri’ helmer Azazel Jacobs has landed Glenn Close, James Franco and Brit Marling for his forthcoming adaptation of the Tom Bailey novel ‘The Grace That Keeps This World.’
Published in 2005, the official for the book is as follows:
“On the edge of the Adirondack wilderness, survival is a way of life for the Hazen family. Gary Hazen is a respected forester and hunter, known for his good instincts and meticulous planning. He and his wife, Susan, have raised their sons to appreciate the satisfaction of this difficult but honest life. In spite of this, the boys, men now, are slipping away. His older son, Gary David, is secretly dating a woman of whom his father would not approve even as Kevin, the younger boy, struggles against the limits of his family’s hardscrabble lifestyle, wanting something more. On the first day of hunting season the Hazen men enter the woods, unaware that the trip they are embarking on will force them to come to terms with their differences and will forever change their lives.”
Jacobs will be working from a script by Matthew Aldrich, with Alix Madigan of Anonymous Content producing with Jewerl Ross and Aldrich.
