Gal Gadot is set to produce and star in a feature film adaptation of Catriona Silvey’s debut novel Meet Me in Another Life.
Meet Me in Another Life, published yesterday, April 27, by Harper Collins’ William Morrow, the story,
“centers on a man and woman who must unravel why they continue to meet in different versions of reality—a genre-bending, thrilling and imaginative exploration of the infinite forms of love and how choices can change everything. Thora and Santi are strangers in a foreign city when a chance encounter intertwines their fates. At once, they recognize in each other a kindred spirit—someone who shares their insatiable curiosity, who is longing for more in life than the cards they’ve been dealt. Only days later, though, a tragic accident cuts their story short. But this is only one of the many connections they share. Like satellites trapped in orbit around each other, Thora and Santi are destined to meet again: as a teacher and prodigy student; a caretaker and dying patient; a cynic and a believer. In numerous lives, they become friends, colleagues, lovers, and enemies. But as blurred memories and strange patterns compound, Thora and Santi come to a shocking revelation—they must discover the truth of their mysterious attachment before their many lives come to one, final end.”
Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce for Atlas Entertainment with Gadot and Varsano for Pilot Wave. Curt Kanemoto will be the executive at Atlas, of Bryony Woods at Diamond Kahn Woods Literary Agency.
“Catriona’s characters are beautifully explored and deeply complex — their reincarnations sometimes bordering on taboo — that the payoff of their self-discovery feels genuine and earned,”
Gadot and Varsano of Pilot Wave said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle to bring this story with many layers on the big screen.”
“As a writer, I’m so inspired by the storytelling possibilities of film. I’m beyond thrilled that a team that has been involved in some of my absolute favorites will be giving my book a whole new life in another medium.”
