Sisterhood EverlastingAlloy Entertainment plans to create a film adaptation of Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ken Kwapis, the director behind the first Sisterhood movie, will helm this project.

Liz Garcia has been hired to pen the script. Thus far, no casting decisions have been announced so it is unclear whether or not Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, and Amber Tamblyn will return to reprise their roles as Bridget, Lena, Carmen, and Tibby.

The fifth and final installment in the popular Sisterhood series is a departure from the first four young adult books in that it is very much an adult story. According to The Huffington Post, “the book catches up with the four best friends 10 years after the fourth novel and almost immediately takes a tragic turn. Tibby, Bridget, Lena and Carmen aren’t ‘Cool Girls,’ female antiheroes or young women saving the world from dystopian disaster. Brashares and the film adaptations flesh out the characters, pass the Bechdel test and tackle real talk.”
