Sarah Polley Adapting “Alias Grace”

Sarah Polley is set to adapt the Margaret Atwood historical novel “Alias Grace” through her Tangled Productions company says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story is a recreation of a true-life Canadian double murder in the 1840s, and a look inside the mind of a 16 year-old housemaid who was convicted and jailed for killing a wealthy landowner and his housekeeper and mistress.

The project would mark the third film behind the camera for the actress following on from the Oscar nominated “Away From Her” and the well reviewed “Take This Waltz”.
