Sony, Keys in tune over movie

Sony Pictures Entertainment has chosen “The Motorcycle Diaries” screenwriter Jose Rivera to adapt “Compositions in Black and White,” the Kathryn Talalay book that’s being developed as a star vehicle for singer Alicia Keys. Keys is attached to play Philippa Schuyler, a woman who grew up a child prodigy, the first child of color to become a nationally prominent musician. Schuyler was composing music by the age of 5, but racial and gender bias prevalent in the 1930s proved a crushing burden for her.
