Sony's Columbia Pictures is teaming up with producer Erwin Stoff to adapt Deborah Rodriguez 's hit book "Kabul Beauty School" into the big screen.

Striving to deliver an inspiring tale for women, Columbia Pictures is on the move to develop a new drama feature entitled "" following its successful attempt to secure the film rights to Deborah Rodriguez 's autobiography of the same name that she wrote alongside Kristin Ohlson.

A New York Times bestseller, the book tells about Rodriguez's personal experience in opening a beauty school in Afghanistan after she decided to head for the country in 2002 following the downfall of the Taliban's reign. With donations from American beauty companies and other benefactors, she worked hard to fulfill her dream while trying to mesh in a culture that was still male-dominated.

Names to write, direct, and star in have not yet been revealed, but it is confirmed that Erwin Stoff will positively serve as a producer for the project. Apart from this project, Stoff is also assigned to produce action horror "" and thriller drama "The Night Watchman (aka Night Watch (2008))" for Warner Bros. and Fox Searchlight Pictures, respectively.
