Nov. 22 (UPI) -- British publisher Canongate has confirmed it is publishing a book based on the diaries of late actor Alan Rickman.
Rickman died of cancer in 2016 at age 69.
"Hey, um, I don't want to make a big deal about this -- I don't really like being the centre of attention, y'know -- but you might want to keep an out for some PRETTY BIG CANONGATE NEWS hitting The Guardian tomorrow," the publisher tweeted Friday.
It also included a GIF video of Rickman smiling and bowing in a scene from Sense and Sensibility.
"I'm delighted that Canongate will be publishing Alan's diaries and couldn't have wished for a finer appointment of editor than Alan Taylor," Rickman's widow Rima Horton told the newspaper. "The diaries reveal not just Alan Rickman the actor but the real Alan -- his sense of humor, his sharp observation, his craftsmanship and his devotion to the arts."
The book is set for release in the fall of 2022.
