STXfilms has acquired worldwide rights to the film adaptation of Lisa Genova’s novel Every Note Played.

Angelina Jolie and Christoph Waltz are in talks to star in the project, which will be directed by Michael Sucsy (Grey Gardens, The Vow).

The story follows a world-renowned concert pianist and composer on the verge of creating his magnum opus. When he receives a life-changing diagnosis, his estranged ex-wife takes up the cross of caring for him, and he is forced to balance reconciling his failed relationships with redefining his pursuit of greatness.
