Actress Elle Fanning will star in the film adaptation of Jennifer Niven’s debut YA novel All the Bright Places.
Producers Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan acquired the screen rights to the Alfred A. Knopf novel, which is due out in January 2015. The novel is the story of “a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die.”
“We are thrilled to have Elle Fanning star in this profound tale of two teens who find themselves in the heart-stopping throes of love, life and death,” stated Mazur. “Remarkably, Jennifer Niven had pictured Elle when she was writing Violet’s character. She is such a perfect fit, and we look forward to watching her bring Violet to life on-screen.”
