Published by HarperCollins in 2011, the book centers on a silverback gorilla named Ivan who lives in a cage in a shopping mall along with an elephant named Stella and a stray dog called Bob. Ivan does not remember life before the mall, but when a baby elephant enters and Ivan finds himself taking care of her, he begins to rediscover his previous life and concocts a plan to take the baby elephant away from their abusive owner.
Applegate, who also created the late 1990s book series Animorphs with her husband, Michael Grant, based the story on a real-life gorilla named Ivan who spent 27 years in a Washington mall before being transferred to the Atlanta Zoo.
The book has spent 60 consecutive weeks (and counting) on the New York Times best-seller list and has won several awards.
A search for a writer is underway to pen the script for what is intended to be a live-action movie.
Applegate is repped by Jason Dravis of the Monteiro Rose Dravis Agency. Dravis also reps Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins and originally met Shearmur when he was setting up Collins’ book at Lionsgate. Shearmur was Lionsgate’s president of production at the time.
Stephen Meinen, VP of Allison Shearmur Productions, will work on the project with Shearmur.

It was revealed earlier this year that Walt Disney Pictures has secured the rights to Katherine Applegate's children's book The One and Only Ivan. Today, Variety reports that School of Rock and Nacho Libre scribe Mike White is in negotiations to direct the big screen adaptation.

Illustrated by Patricia Castelao, the Newberry Medal winning book was published in 2011 and is officially described as follows:

Ivan is an easygoing gorilla. Living at the Exit 8 Big Top Mall and Video Arcade, he has grown accustomed to humans watching him through the glass walls of his domain. He rarely misses his life in the jungle. In fact, he hardly ever thinks about it at all.

Bryan Cranston Joins Angelina Jolie in Disney's 'The One and Only Ivan' (Exclusive)

Thea Sharrock, director of the tearjerker Me Before You, is helming the live-action/CG hybrid, which also has The Florida Project breakout Brooklynn Prince and Ariana Greenblatt, one of the stars of Disney Channel's Stuck in the Middle, on the call sheet.

Published by HarperCollins in 2011, the book centers on a silverback gorilla named Ivan (Rockwell) who lives in a cage in a shopping mall along with an elephant named Stella (Jolie) and a stray dog called Bob. Ivan does not remember life before the mall, but when a baby elephant named Ruby enters and Ivan finds himself taking care of her, he begins to rediscover his previous life and concocts a plan to take the baby elephant away from their abusive owner.

Cranston will play the desperate owner of a failing circus.

Mike White wrote the script. Jolie is producing along with Brigham Taylor. Allison Shearmur, who recently died, will retain a producer credit on the movie.

Cranston, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in Trumbo, is currently on the London stage at the National Theatre starring in Network, the adaptation of the 1970s classic Paddy Chayefsky film. He also voices a character in Wes Anderson's stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs, which opens March 23.

Helen Mirren and Danny DeVito join The One and Only Ivan as production begins

Production has begun at Pinewood Studios outside London on Walt Disney Pictures‘ live-action/CG hybrid The One and Only Ivan, based on the award-winning children’s book by Katherine Applegate. Award-winning Danny DeVito and Helen Mirren have joined the voice cast, which includes the previously-announced Angelina Jolie, Sam Rockwell, and Brooklynn Prince. The live-action cast includes Bryan Cranston, Ramon Rodriquez, Arianna Greenblatt, Indira Varma, and Eleanor Matsuura.

The One and Only Ivan is being directed by Thea Sharrock (Me Before You) from the screenplay written by two-time Independent Spirit Award winner Mike White (Pitch Perfect 3, The School of Rock). Oscar and three-time Golden Globe winner Angelina Jolie (First They Killed My Father, Maleficent) is producing along with the late Allison Shearmur (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Cinderella) and Brigham Taylor (Christopher Robin, The Jungle Book).

Based on the true story of a uniquely-talented gorilla and the other animals who share a communal habitat at a suburban shopping mall, The One and Only Ivan is an unforgettable tale about the beauty of friendship, the power of visualization and the significance of the place we call home. Applegate’s book, a #1 New York Times’ bestseller, has won numerous awards, including the Newberry Medal for the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children in 2013.

The One and Only Ivan’s illustrated novel is inspired by the true story of a captive gorilla known as Ivan and is told from his point-of-view. Having spent 27 years behind the glass walls of his enclosure in a shopping mall, Ivan has grown accustomed to humans watching him. He hardly ever thinks about his life in the jungle. Instead, Ivan occupies himself with television, his friends Stella and Bob, and painting. But when he meets Ruby, a baby elephant taken from the wild, he is forced to see their home, and his art, through new eyes.
