A perfect Divorce

Columbia Pictures and producer Irwin Winkler have acquired Avery Corman novel A Perfect Divorce and set Ghost screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin to write it, reports Variety.

The novel chronicles the aftermath of a Manhattan couple's divorce and how, despite their best efforts, their teenage son gets hit with the emotional shrapnel.

Corman previously addressed divorce in his book Kramer vs. Kramer, which became the Oscar-winning film. He also wrote the novel Oh, God!, which was turned into the Carl Reiner-directed 1977 comedy; Warner Bros. and producer Jerry Weintraub are developing a remake of the latter to star Ellen DeGeneres.
