(AP Photo/Charles Sykes) (Newser) – Nora Ephron, the celebrated writer and filmmaker who died last June of complications from leukemia, will be getting an HBO documentary about her life, reports the Hollywood Reporter. Her son, journalist Jacob Bernstein, is developing the film, titled Everything Is Copy after a lesson that Ephron's screenwriter mother taught her; he will also co-direct and co-produce it. Bernstein wrote a long and moving remembrance of his mother last month in the New York Times Magazine.
