Extremely Loud to direct Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Stephen Daldry is attached to direct upcoming feature Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

The film is based on a 9/11-themed novel by Jonathan Safran Foer.

Foer’s book tells the story of Oscar Schell, a gifted 9-year-old searching for a lock that matches a key left by his father, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks in New York.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button scribe Eric Roth has adapted the novel for the screen.
