Twilight Saga‘s Karen Rosenfelt is producing, and filming is due to start this summer, with director Brian Percival (Downton Abbey) on board.
The WWII story involves Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich who survives by stealing books. Aided by her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with neighbors during bombing raids. One of those who benefits from the books is the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

BOY (9 - 14),
