Sony Pictures has acquired the film rights to “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” the 2013 book written by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, according to Deadline.
Sony chose Nell Scovell, a TV and movie writer responsible for “Sabrina, The Teenage Witch,” among others, to write the script.
Scovell actually helped Sandberg write the book, and will be creating a screenplay that’s not a biography of Sandberg, but a narrative about some of its larger themes.
Sandberg will donate her proceeds from the project to her foundation.
