Filmmaker Ari Folman to Adapt ‘The Diary of a Young Girl’

www.randomhouseAcademy Award-nominated filmmaker Ari Folman plans to create “a family-driven animated” movie inspired by The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.

Folman will serve as both the director and the screenwriter. Production is scheduled to start next year.
