Paul Feig has been winning nerd hearts for years now by directing episodes of beloved TV shows like Freaks and Geeks, The Office, and Arrested Development, but last year he won the hearts of the whole world when he directed the lady-centric comedy Bridesmaids, and sold about a gabillion movie tickets in the process. Seeing as he’s now such a well-regarded figure, it would stand to reason that everyone is eagerly anticipating whatever he’s going to do next. Well, lucky us, Deadline Royal Oaks has some news about one of his upcoming projects.

Feig is attached to direct a film called Garlic and Sapphires, which is an adaptation of the memoirs of “New York Times” food critic Ruth Reichl. The source material details the lengths she used to go to in order to disguise herself and dine in top restaurants semi-anonymously (apparently it involved wearing a lot of sapphires). Before Feig gets to work on the film, however, Deadline says that Elizabeth Sarnoff will be giving the screenplay a rewrite.

Sarnoff is another name close to the hearts of nerds, because she served as executive producer on the fan-favorite J.J. Abrams show Lost for five years. In addition to that, she worked as a co-creator of the new show Alcatraz. Her work on the Garlic and Sapphires script will be her first foray into the world of feature films.
