‘Me Before You’: An adaptation in the works!

Fans of Jojo Moyes, get excited!

‘Me Before You’ is being adapted into a movie!!! The movie will be directed by Thea Sharrock – who seems very passionate about this project. Writers Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter are said to be working on Ms Moyes’s draft of the script. Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin are set to play Louisa Clark and Will Traynor respectively. The tentative release date of ‘Me Before You’ is August 2015.

If you don’t know much about ‘Me Before You’, here is a synopsis:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.

What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.

What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.

Now who’s excited about this book-to-movie adaptation?
