Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier is in negotiations to direct the English-language romantic comedy Which Brings Me to You.
The Anonymous Content-produced picture is based on Julianna Baggott and Steve Almond's epistolary novel. It centers on a single man and single woman who meet at a wedding and begin a relationship in which they write letters describing past romances and missteps. Published in 2006, the book earned strong reviews as a clever look at modern romance.
Keith Bunin wrote the script for the film.
Bier made a name for herself with the Danish-language melodrama After the Wedding -- which was nominated for a foreign-language Oscar in 2007 -- and went on to helm the Benicio del Toro-starring recovery tale Things We Lost in the Fire for Paramount.
She also co-wrote and directed the Danish-language Brothers, a war-themed drama that is being remade for Lionsgate with Jim Sheridan at the helm and starring Natalie Portman. She is attached to Universal's romantic comedy Lost for Words, which concerns a movie star who falls for his translator.
