Lena Dunham to Adapt Refugee Drama ‘A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea’ for Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams
“Girls” may be gone, but Lena Dunham is not. Variety reports that the actress and filmmaker is adapting “A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Refugee’s Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival” for a project being co-produced by Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. One imagines that the movie based on Melissa Fleming’s nonfiction account of a Syrian refugee lost at sea will have a somewhat shorter title by the time it’s complete.

Fleming, who serves as chief spokesperson for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (Unhcr), wrote her book about Dooa Al Zamel, who fled Egypt via boat along with hundreds of other refugees (including her husband) en route to Sweden. After being shipwrecked and watching many of her fellow passengers die, she survived by cradling her two small children in her arms for days with the help of an inflatable ring.
