Deadline has exclusively learned that the screenwriter behind Freaky Friday starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan, What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Legal Blonde: The Musical, Heather Hach, will write Sony’s adaptation of Allison Winn Scotch novel Time of My Life that was published in 2009.
Time of My Life follows Jillian Westfield, whose life is straight out of women’s magazines that she is always avidly reading but is discontented with her life to only be a stay-at-home mom with her eighteen-month-old and investment-banker husband.
One morning Jillian wakes up in the past, where she is back in her old Manhattan apartment, her fast-paced job, and with her ex-boyfriend Jackson who just also happens to be in her “what if” fantasies.
Equipped with 20/20 hindsight, she’s free to start all over again. She can bond with her mother, who left; she can use ad campaigns she created from the future to impress her clients and repair that fight that doomed her relationship with Jackson.
But the question that must be asked is, can she fix the past for a better future than the one she had?
Hach co-wrote YA novel Freaky Monday with American composer, author, and screenwriter Mary Rogers who wrote the book Freaky Friday. Freaky Monday was published by HarperCollins in 2009.
