A Wrinkle of Time is not the only book from the '60s getting a film adaptation.

Published a year after the children's classic, The Bell Jar was Sylvia Plath's only novel, a fictionalized version of her experiences as she came into her own as a woman, as a writer and as a person struggling with severe depression. A movie version for the film is in the works and will mark the directorial debut of Kirsten Dunst. Dakota Fanning will star in the film as Esther Greenwood, Plath's alter ego in the novel.
