It looks like we can add Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to the long list of YA books slated to get the movie treatment. After a mere two months of being on shelves, the rights to Han’s book has been picked up by Will Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment, reports Deadline.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before follows Lara Jean Song, a high schooler who locks all her letters in a hatbox, never to be sent. These aren’t hate letters or diary entrees. Rather, all of Song’s letters are issued to the five boys who she has ever loved. Disaster strikes when all the letters are sent to these boys, including her sisters ex boyfriend who she has always been in love with. Annie Neal will be adapting the story for the screen.
Han is also the mind behind the hit YA trilogy “the Summer I Turned Pretty.” We are so excited for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before to join the list of this years announced upcoming book to movie adaptations including The 5th Wave and Eleanor and Park. This is also a good time for a reminder that John Green’s Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska are both currently in the works to be adapted for the screen.
So many book to movie adaptations, so little time. What’s a book you think should be turned into a movie? Share with us in the comments below.
