Memoir from Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner to Hit the Silver Screen

MGM's Orion Pictures have acquired the rights to the artist's book Crying in H Mart.

Last Friday, Michelle Zauner released her third album as Japanese Breakfast. Jubilee proves to be a continuation of Zauner’s lyrical prowess and an examination of happiness’ woes, limitations, and euphoric highs. But that album wasn’t the only great achievement the artist released this year; this past April, she shared her memoir Crying in H Mart, which became an instant NYT‘s bestseller. Now, there’s even more joyous news for Zauner with the announcement that Crying in H Mart will be adapted to the silver screen.

Crying in H Mart will be produced by Stacey Sher and Jazon Kim. Japanese Breakfast will, naturally, be creating the film’s soundtrack. Zauner said in a statement, “It is a surreal thrill to have the opportunity to memorialize my mother in film, and I consider it of the highest honor to pursue that task alongside creative luminaries such as Stacey Sher, Jason Kim and Orion Pictures.”

Still haven’t read her memoir? Order the book here.
