Earlier this week, the very exciting news arrived that MGM had bought the film rights to Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. How much involvement Jojo will have on the project remains to be seen, with the author tweeting earlier this week that she gets to be "'script consultant'. Which I think means that I get to make the tea and nod occasionally." (@jojoymoyes)
MGM’s president, Jonathan Glickman said, “Jojo’s book is frankly one of the most unique, emotional and engaging love stories written in recent years. We’re so thrilled to collaborate with her on creating a classic film romance that lives up to this exceptional novel.”
Me Before You was voted as the Novelicious book of 2012 so we are delighted to hear this exciting news!
Many congratulations to Jojo. Fingers crossed it all comes off and they do as great a job adapting it as you did writing it!
