The Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel is preparing to shoot “Miral” on location in Israel and the Palestinian territories, Variety reports. The film, starring the Palestinian actress Hiam Abbas, is to be based on Rula Jebreal’s book about Hind Husseini — the founder of Jerusalem’s Dar Al-Tifl orphanage.

“Miral” will be set between the years 1948 and 1994, and is slated to hit theaters in spring of 2010.
