Miramax Adapting Heller’s “The Believers”

Miramax Films and producer Scott Rudin are set to adapt Zoe Heller’s novel “The Believers” reports Variety.

“The Believers” is the character study of members of a dysfunctional New York-based family forced to examine their lives and each other after the patriarch suffers a stroke that leaves him in a coma.

Patrick Marber, who previously adapted Heller’s “Notes on a Scandal” in 2006, is set to write the script.
