STILL ALICE Adaptation

Still AliceThe movie version of Lisa Genova’s 2008 best seller, Still Alice, (S&S/Gallery) is about to begin shooting, reveals one of the movie’s stars, Kate Bosworth who told E! News Online on Wednesday, “I am shooting a movie here in New York called Still Alice with Julianne Moore. I am really excited! It’s one of my favorite novels.”

News surfaced recently that the majority of the main cast is in place (The Wrap, 1/28/14). Moore stars as Alice, a professor of neuroscience with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Kristen Stewart will play Lydia, her younger daughter, with Alec Baldwin as her husband, John, and Bosworth as her older daughter, Anna. Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland will direct (they have co-directed several other movies, including Quinceañera, 2006).

Genova, a neuroscientist herself, self-published the novel in 2007. After it was rereleased by S&S in 2008, it spent 41 weeks on the NYT best seller in hardcover and paperback. She has published two novels since, both with S&S, Left Neglected and Love Anthony.

In the video below, Genova talks about the real-life inspiration for Still Alice.
