Crying in H Mart, the debut memoir from Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner, is going to be adapted into a film. The rights were acquired by MGM’s Orion Pictures, and the film will be produced by Stacey Sher and Jason Kim. Zauner will compose the soundtrack.
“It is a surreal thrill to have the opportunity to memorialize my mother in film, and I consider it of the highest honor to pursue that task alongside creative luminaries such as Stacey Sher, Jason Kim and Orion Pictures,” Zauner said in a statement.
An extension of her 2018 New Yorker essay of the same name, Crying In H Mart was released in April and debuted at #2 on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list. Japanese Breakfast released her third studio album Jubilee last Friday. Read our review of the album.
