Jonathan Kesselman (The Hebrew Hammer) will write and produce the drama, Abe Gilman's Ending for his company Worldwide Media Conspiracy.
The film is based on Glenn Frank's prize-winning debut novel; Frank will also co-produce the flick. The Hollywood Reporter says it centers on a depressed man in a wheelchair forced to move to a nursing home after his wife dies. Close to giving up hope, his interest in life is rekindled when a new patient enlists others for a historical project. In an intertwined story line, a young German Jewish boy in post-World War II Boston attempts to discover what happened to his father after the Holocaust.
Abe Gilman's Ending has no production schedule set.
