CODA’s Siân Heder Will Direct the Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow Movie

Back in 2021, Paramount Pictures bought the rights to Gabrielle Zevin’s then-upcoming novel Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow—long before it sold almost 3 million copies worldwide, became a staple of book clubs, and was a Goodreads Choice winner and Amazon’s Best Book of 2022. Zevin wrote a draft of the script, which then went to Mark Bomback (who has some experience with adaptations, writing 2019’s The Art of Racing in the Rain).

And now, Deadline reports, the film has a director: Siân Heder, whose CODA (pictured above) won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay in 2022. She has also directed episodes of GLOW and Orange is the New Black.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is about two childhood friends, Sam and Sadie, who find each other again in college, and begin to collaborate on the creation of video games—games in which they express everything they can’t say to each other face to face. Since it was first announced, the adaptation has been described as “a modern love story about two friends,” which is true but not quite sufficient. The novel covers decades and is as smart about deep friendship as it is about creation and loss and failure. It’s going to be quite a challenge to put on screen.

And a challenge to cast, too. It will be very interesting to see who plays Sam and Sadie. No production timeline or premiere date have been announced. icon-paragraph-end
