Derek Cianfrance to direct The Light Between Oceans

Wednesday, September 04, 2013 12:46 PM | Anonymous

Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Studios has selected Derek Cianfrance to direct "The Light Between Oceans," a post-WWI drama based on Perth author ML Stedman's debut novel. 

Dreamworks secured the rights to the film last year after the novel received both critical and commercial success.

A post-WWI drama, "The Light Between Oceans" tells the story of a lighthouse keeper and his bride who find a boat washed ashore with a dead man and a crying infant. 

DreamWorks production president Holly Bario said in a statement: 

“With his previous work, Derek has exhibited a deft touch when handling complex and emotional subject matters,” 

“With Derek on board to direct, we know the project couldn’t be in more capable hands.”
