Local bestseller “The Coincidence Makers” by Israeli author Yoav Blum is being adapted for the big screen by American screenwriter Richard Friedenberg, best known for his Oscar-nominated screenplay of Robert Redford’s 1991 drama “A River Runs Through It.”

Friedenberg is teaming up with award-winning Israeli-American writer Micky Levy, according to Epic Pictures, which is developing the project as well as a television series created by Blum.

The bestselling sci-fi romance is about three ordinary people who create and carry out coincidences that are designed to spark significant changes and sometimes even alter history.

Shaked Berenson, Epic’s co-founder, first read the book while visiting family in Israel and told “The Hollywood Reporter” he couldn’t put it down.

The book has been translated into 11 languages, including English.
