From Variety:

Disney has acquired the rights to film a new version of “The Diary of Anne Frank.”  The film will be written and directed by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet.

Mamet will use the famed diary, and the original play by Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, to tell the story of the young jewish girl who hid with her family from the Nazis in the an attic in Amsterdam. Mamet brings his own original take on the material that could re-frame the story as a young girl’s rite of passage.
