Will helm the historical drama…

‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ and ‘Hannibal Rising’ director Peter Webber has closed a deal to step behind the camera for an adaptation of Daniel Mason’s acclaimed historical novel ‘The Piano Tuner,’ says Screen Daily.

Set in 1886, the drama follows “a piano tuner who receives a strange request by the British War Office to deliver a rare grand piano to a legendary British Officer in the remote jungles of northeast Burma.”

Mulberry Films partners Gopi Sait, Sunaman Sood and Rashaana Shah will produce the adaptation alongside Daria Jovicic of Latitude Media.
