The novel “Klara and the Sun” by Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro will soon be made into a movie, and Taika Waititi is reportedly in talks to helm it. The contract is still being discussed between Waititi and Sony’s 3000 Pictures, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 2021 book “Klara and the Sun” is about an Artificial Friend named Klara who takes care of a sick child while travelling with her. The same year, the novel was on the long list for the Booker Prize.

The screenplay for the upcoming movie was originally written by Dahvi Waller. Rumour has it that in addition to directing the movie, Waititi and Garrett Basch are also negotiating to split producing duties.

The film adaptation of “Klara and the Sun” will also have Elizabeth Gabler and Aislinn Dunster from 3000 Pictures as Executive Producers. Kazuo Ishiguro, a Japanese-British author, was awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature. According to the webpage for the award, Ishiguro “has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world in novels of great emotional force.” Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day are two of his books that have been made into films, among others.
