MGM fast tracks production for the adaptation of David Levithan’s best-selling novel EVERY DAY with director and star established.
It was recently announced on Deadline that David Levithan‘s best-selling novel Every Day is on the fast track to hitting the movie theaters as they plan for production to start next month in Toronto, Canada. MGM, the production company that acquired the rights for the movie, already has Michael Sucsy (The Vow) signed on as the director, and Australian Angourie Rice (The Nice Guys) has been cast to play female protagonist Rhiannon.
Read the book overview for Every Day:
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
Screenwriter Jesse Andrews (Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl) wrote the script for the film. As for Rice, we’ll get a chance to see her in the upcoming drama The Beguiled with Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Nicole Kidman, and the superhero movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming starring Tom Holland.
You can order a copy of Every Day or it’s companion novel, Another Day.
