Sidney Kimmel Entertainment will independently finance and co-produce the film with Double Nickel Entertainment. Sidney Kimmel will produce, along with Double Nickel’s Jenette Kahn and Adam Richman (“Gran Torino”).

“ ‘Book of Henry’ is a remarkable piece of screenwriting that has stuck with me for years,” Trevorrow said. “I feel very fortunate to be able to tell this story. It is a true original.”
This project is the second in the past month that Trevorrow has lined up, having also attached himself to the sci-fi project “Intelligent Life.” “Jurassic World” bows on June 12.
Trevorrow is repped by Verve, 3 Arts and Ginsburg Daniels.
