The first film for Apple and A24 is the Sofia Coppola-directed On the Rocks, which stars Rashida Jones and Bill Murray.
Nelson will adapt and write the script from her own novel, and Josephine Decker, who helmed Madeline’s Madeline and the Elisabeth Moss-starrer Shirley, is attached to direct. The novel follows a teen as she works through the loss of her sister. Her journey includes accidentally falling in love.
Denise Di Novi and Margaret French Isaac will produce for Di Novi Pictures, alongside Decker, who is repped by Paradigm and Exile.
