A story from Etgar Keret's short story collection The Nimrod Flip-Out will be made into a stop-motion animated movie, according to Sandy George, film writer for The Australian.

The Israeli author gave a script called $9.99 to Australian producer Emile Sherman after the two met for coffee in Israel.

Sherman sought out Keret after some of his friends raved about Keret's short stories.

Sherman has produced some excellent films in the past, including Oyster Farmer.

The title of the story in the collection is For Only $9.99 (Inc. Tax and Postage). It is 10 pages long.
