A new HBO documentary will rewind the life and times of Nora Ephron.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new film is being developed for HBO by Ephron’s son, journalist Jacob Bernstein, who will co-produce and direct an intimate portrait of his late mother, best known as the writer-director of such films as Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail and When Harry Met Sally.
Tentatively titled Everything is Copy, the documentary follows up on Bernstein’s personal profile Nora Ephron’s Final Act, which was published last month in the New York Times magazine. The article featured a retelling of Ephron’s final moments of lucidity, which included several sharp jokes, crossword-puzzle clues and hazy hallucinations. The HBO film is currently slated for broadcast in early 2014.
Ephron died last summer at 71 from pneumonia, a complication resulting from acute myeloid leukemia. Her death took Hollywood and many of her friends by surprise as she kept her illness a tightly-guarded secret.
