The upcoming movie is based on Gabrielle Zevin’s novel of the same name, which was published in 2014.

The film is centered on a bookstore-owning widower whose life takes a downturn after his precious collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s poetry is stolen.

However, the character’s life is drastically changed after he receives a mysterious package. 

Lucy is currently set to portray a woman named Amelia in the upcoming feature, and her casting was announced last July.

Other cast members include Christina Hendricks, David Arquette and Kunal Nayyar, who will portray the movie’s titular character.

In addition to penning the original novel, Zevin returned to write the forthcoming movie’s screenplay.

Lucy, Nayyar and Hendricks will all serve as three of the movie’s executive producers.

Producer David Garrett previously spoke about the project during an interview with Variety, where he praised the book on which the future movie is based. 

‘The reason this is such a wonderful story with such great characters, is that the script is hewn from the most wonderful source material,’ he said.

Garrett went on to express that the film would showcase deep levels of drama in an ultimately positive manner. 

‘It shines light on those connections which are at the heart of all human relationships in such a joyous and life-affirming fashion,’ he stated.

Physical production on the project began last year, with Cape Cod serving as a primary filming location.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry’s prospective release date has not been publicly announced as of yet. 

Latest project: Though she was taking care of personal business on Friday, Hale has also been prepping for the release of her forthcoming feature The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
