Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea’s Pacific Standard banner are developing a film adaptation for Warner Bros. of Wendy Walker’s upcoming thriller novel “All Is Not Forgotten.”

The book, to be published by St. Martin’s Press in 2017, centers on a teenager’s rape in suburban Connecticut and the efforts by her parents and psychiatrist to help her recall the details of the attack. Witherspoon is not yet attached to act in the project.

Warner Bros. acquired the rights in a competitive auction brokered by CAA, which reps Witherspoon.

It’s the third movie project that Pacific Standard has set with Warner Bros. following S.J. Watson’s thriller novel “Second Life” and Maureen Sherry Klinsky’s upcoming novel “Opening Belle,” with an eye to Witherspoon starring in the Wall Street comedy.

The banner is also attached to New Line’s adaptation of Garth Callaghan’s memoir, “Napkin Notes: Make Lunch Meaningful, Life Will Follow.”

“All Is Not Forgotten” is Pacific Standard’s ninth development project. Witherspoon and Papandea formed Pacific Standard in 2012 in order to remedy the absence of movies with female protagonists. They have since produced “Wild,” “Gone Girl” and “Hot Pursuit.”

The banner has been developing Jessica Knoll’s “Luckiest Girl Alive” at Lionsgate, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon’s “Ashley’s War” at Fox 2000, “Big Little Lies,” “The Engagements,” “Pennyroyal’s Princess Boot Camp” and “The Outliers.”

News about “All Is Forgotten” was first reported by Deadline.
