'Birds of Prey' director Cathy Yan to adapt 'Sour Hearts'

Based on the short story collection by Jenny Zhang.

Hot on the heels of helming the upcoming DC movie Birds of Prey, director Cathy Yan has found her next project: A24's Sour Hearts, based on the debut short story collection by Jenny Zhang.

The movie unfolds from the perspective of a girl growing up in the outer boroughs of New York in the 1990s. With parents newly arrived from Shanghai, the family works through the unique trials of ascending to the middle class. A coming-of-age tale told with insight and humor, the story offers a sweeping perspective on the humility and heartache of the immigrant experience, as told from the point of view of children and parents.

Zhang and Yan will co-write the script.
