In a world… Lake Bell will star in The Emperor’s Children


Lake Bell is set to helm “The Emperor’s Children”.

The adaptation of Claire Messud’s novel will be Bell’s second directorial credit, following her award-winning debut film “In A World”.

Set in New York, the 2006 book follows three entitled but unsuccessful 20-somethings who orbit the life of a famous journalist in the months before and after the events of 9/11.

Noah Baumbach is writing the screenplay with Brian Grazer and Erica Huggins producing.
