Lionsgate has snapped up the feature film rights to Kate Atkinson's bestseller "Life After Life." TV writers Semi Chellas ("Mad Men") and Esta Spalding ("The Bridge") are adapting the novel into a screenplay.

The book, which was first published in April, centers on a woman who discovers she has the extraordinary ability to start her life over from scratch, realizing along the way that tiny decisions can have enormous consequences. It is set against the backdrop of World War II.  

"Life After Life" was selected by both Oprah and Martha Stewart for their Summer Reading Lists, and is currently Amazon Editors' #1 pick for their 2013 So Far roundup.
