Brian Miller Pen 'All Our Yesterdays'

Scribe also working on script for WB's 'Rome, Sweet Rome'

Global Produce and Gold Circle Entertainment have acquired screen rights to the book “All Our Yesterdays” and set “Rome, Sweet Rome” scribe Brian Miller to pen the script.

Pic is based on the book by Cristin Terrill and set in the near-future when a young woman must travel back in time to kill her first love before he destroys her present-day world.

Acquired in a major auction by Disney-Hyperion, “All Our Yesterdays” has already been purchased in multiple territories around the world, highlighted by a deal with the original “Harry Potter” publisher, Bloomsbury UK, which will release the book as a lead title. Book is out in the U.S. on Sept. 3.

Global Produce’s Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty will produce alongside Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks. Gold Circle chief operating officer Scott Niemeyer and Guy Danella will exec produce with New Leaf Literary’s Pouya Shahbazian and Alexandra Loewy of Global Produce.

“This is a dream come true to see these characters, who have lived solely in my head this past year, come to life as a motion picture with partners who passionately see the full potential of the material,” said author Terrill.

Miller most recently did a polish on  “Rome, Sweet Rome,” which generated buzz after Warner Bros. purchased the pitch from James Erwin. He had posted it several times on Reddit, the online community and social news aggregator, where Miller set out to answer the question: “What if a unit of U.S. Marines are transported back in time and forced to do battle with Roman legions?”

Miller also penned the script to Dimension’s “Apollo 18.” He is repped by CAA and 3 Arts and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
