Sarah Ruhl is adapting Steinem’s memoir for the screen. June Pictures’ Andrew Duncan and Alex Saks are producing with Taymor and Lynn Hendee. Steinem and Amy Richards will be executive producers.

Steinem became a leading spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the 1960s and 1970s. Moore won an Academy Award for the 2014 drama “Still Alice.”

Moore is repped by CAA and Management 36o. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

EXECUTIVE NEWS

Avi Lerner’s Millennium Media has named Jeffrey Greenstein as its new president, and Jonathan Yunger as co-president.

Lerner and chief operating officer Trevor Short made the announcement Wednesday on the opening day of the American Film Market in Santa Monica, Calif.

Greenstein, who replaces the departed Mark Gill, became international president in 2015, overseeing all sales and distribution. Yunger was previously VP of international sales.

RIGHTS ACQUISITIONS

Octane Entertainment has bought worldwide sales rights to the psychological horror film “St. Agatha,” currently in post-production.

The film was written by Andy Demetrio, Shaun Fletcher, Sara Sometti Michaels and Clint Sears and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, the director behind three installments of the “Saw” franchise. It stars Sabrina Kern, Carolyn Hennesy, Courtney Halverson, Trin Miller and Seth Michaels.

“St. Agatha” is set in 1950s small town Georgia, and follows a pregnant con woman named Agatha, who is on the run and seeks refuge in an isolated convent. What seems like the perfect place to have a child turns into a twisted nightmare with odd people lurking in its halls.
