According to Variety, Sony Pictures Entertainment has set The Motorcycle Diaries scribe Jose Rivera to adapt Compositions in Black and White, the Kathryn Talalay book that's being developed as a star vehicle for singer Alicia Keys.

Keys is attached to play Philippa Schuyler, a woman who grew up a child prodigy, the first child of color to become a nationally prominent musician. Schuyler was composing music by the age of 5, but racial and gender bias prevalent in the 1930s proved a crushing burden for her.
