Director Ridley Scott and documentarian Asif Kapadia, will adapt the non-fiction best-seller "Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind", by historian Yuval Noah Harari, charting the course of the development of human beings into a feature film:
"It is a book that changes how you see the world and our adaptation should do the same," said Kapadia, "to serve as a wake-up call for who we are, where we have come from and where we are heading.
"We hope to mix science, fiction, history, drama and genius in order to bring to life the incredible journey of our species, that began as an insignificant animal and is now on the verge of becoming a 'god'," said Harari.
"Sapiens" has sold 8 million copies in 30 languages since its publication in 2011.
