THR – Haley Lu Richardson and the filmmakers behind the To All the Boys franchise are teaming for a feature adaptation of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight.
Matt Kaplan and his ACE Entertainment banner will produce the feature, which is set to shoot in London. Along with starring, Richardson is set to executive produce.
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, from author Jennifer E. Smith, is set over a 24-hour period and follows Hadley and Oliver, who begin to fall for each other on their flight from New York to London. But, as the logline reads, “is it misfortune or fate that separates them when they land? The probability of ever finding each other again seems impossible, but love — and London — may have a way of defying the odds.“
Amazing news and great new project for Haley Lu!
Deadline – Deadline first told you about Warner Bros’ streaming service plans to produce an adaptation of Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan’s novel UNPregnant back in June. On Thursday, HBO Max made it official, saying the film from Erik Feig’s Picturestart and Greg Berlanti Productions will star Five Feet Apart‘s Haley Lu Richardson and Euphoria’s Barbie Ferreira. Rachel Lee Goldenberg remains set to direct.
UNpregnant tells the story of 17-year-old Veronica (Richardson), who never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with two solid pink lines. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This tough and never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 900+ mile road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend Bailey (Ferreira), where they discover that one of the most important factors in your life is who your friends are.
