“I am humbled and honoured to partner with Amazon Studios to bring my story and heart to life on the screen,” Simpson said in a statement. “I know that parts of my life have been extraordinary, but I also know that many of my struggles are universal. I hope to continue the mission I set out to accomplish in writing Open Book — to inspire others to be entertained, moved, and empowered to walk through fear and come out on the other side even stronger.”
