American actress Kyra Sedgwick will direct the independent supernatural love story "The Way Between" from a script by Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lee.
Casting will begin shortly, reports variety.com.
"The Way Between" centres on a man who loses his girlfriend in a tragic car accident but finds a way to reconnect with his beloved by bending the laws of reality. His unwillingness to let her go soon blurs his waking life and his intersecting world of dreams.
"From the moment I read ‘The Way Between,' I was captivated by this deeply romantic and universal story of love, sacrifice, empathy and ‘finding your way,'" Sedgwick said.
Sedgwick made her directorial debut with "Story of a Girl" for Lifetime, which received a Directors Guild of America nomination in the television and miniseries category.
Lee won her Oscar as the writer and director of the 2013 Disney animated feature "Frozen." She currently serves as the chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios.
