The adaptation will be Beaufoy's first theatrical work. His screenwriting credits include 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire, for which he won an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and a BAFTA. He was not involved with the popular stage musical version, which features a book by Terrence McNally and a score by David Yazbek.
