Agresti’s the chosen ‘One’

Helmer to take on story of orphaned sisters growing up

Argentine helmer Alejandro Agresti (“Valentin”) has signed to direct “One Thing Always,” which Warner Independent Pictures is lining up to finance.

“One Thing Always” is adapted by Matthew Specktor from Shirley Hazzard’s novel “The Transit of Venus.”

Spanning the 1950s to the ’80s, it’s the story of two orphaned sisters who leave Australia to make a new life in post-war England. One opts for the apparent security of marriage while the other chooses a more turbulent romantic path.

Pic has been developed by @radical.media with Jane Long, under option from Universal, which inherited the rights to the book from Polygram. Warner Independent is now in negotiations to take over the project from Universal, to shoot later this year.

Long and Specktor will produce with @radical exec Jack Lechner. Exec producers are Jon Kamen and Frank Scherma.
