I love how the trailer looks, it really is stunning. The static, her voice breaking up, broadcast interruptions– the trailer goes along with the book so well. It makes me even more excited to have my hardback copy on my shelf! I wish it was November 30th already! x

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney are in talks to write the screenplay for the futuristic love story “Matched” for Disney.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing.

The screenplay will be based on the novel of the same name by Ally Condie. Dutton Juvenile will publish the book on November 30.

The film will be set in a future society where people are told what to think, do and who to love. A young woman rejects a prepared romance and sets out to find her real love.

The Mulroneys wrote last year’s independent film “Paper Man,” that starred Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds. They are currently working on the script for Warner Bros.’s sequel to “Sherlock Holmes.”

Disney and Offspring Entertainment have formed a love connection over Ally Condie’s upcoming young adult novel “Matched.”

The Mouse House fended off Paramount in a bidding war to pick up the film rights to the soon-to-be-published book for the shingle, run by Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot, to produce.

Penguin’s Dutton division will begin rolling out the first installment of the three-title futuristic fable to bookstores on Nov. 30.

The world revolves around a society that dictates what individuals read, watch and believe, and who they are partnered with during a Matching Ceremony that takes place on their 18th birthday.

Offspring is starting to go out to scribes to tackle the adaptation.

The project, with its love triangle and young characters, is being described as yet another potential “Twilight” for Disney.
