Lena Dunham has signed on to script a new Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams movie.
The Girls star and creator will adapt A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Refugee’s Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival, which Spielberg and Abrams will produce.
Melissa Fleming’s book centres on the true story of Doaa Al Zamel, a mother of two who survived a shipwreck while fleeing Egypt for Sweden by clinging to an inflatable ring.
Spielberg will produce under his Amblin Partners company, while Abrams will develop it under Bad Robot.
Lena is currently filming Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in which she portrays Catherine Share, a member of serial killer Charles Manson’s cult The Family.
Earlier this month (Oct18), the actress was photographed flashing her co-star Brad Pitt on the set of the film and explained she was trying to show him a tattoo.
“My scenes are opposite Brad Pitt and I wouldn’t share that because obviously there is a tight embargo, except that the paparazzi did get a picture of me flashing Brad Pitt my underwear,” she told Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “It was between takes, it made sense in the moment.
“We were talking about Kewpie dolls, an illustrated character of the 1920s, and someone asked, ‘What’s a Kewpie doll?’ And I said, ‘Well, I can show you, I’ve got one right here on my side’. Skirt comes up. If you’ve got it illustrated on your body, who are you not to show the people.”
Lena also went on to share that her publicist begged her not to flash anyone again.
