'Little Miss Sunshine' directors in talks to adapt 'Silver Linings Playbook' author's latest novel

Nearly one year after DreamWorks acquired the rights to Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick’s manuscript The Good Luck of Right Now, the studio is in negotiations with Little Miss Sunshine directing team Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris to head up the adaptation. Variety first reported the news.

The story follows a middle-aged man who has always lived with his mother. When she dies, he and a group of fellow outsiders — a librarian, her vulgar brother, and an ex-priest — head to Canada. On the way they form a family of sorts. Oh, and it’s all told through a series of letters written to Richard Gere. Yep, that Richard Gere.


DreamWorks acquires 'Silver Linings Playbook' author's new manuscript


All it takes is a hit, Oscar-nominated movie based on your small debut novel about mental illness, relationships, and the Philadelphia Eagles to become one of the most coveted voices in town. Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick is a Hollywood Cinderella story. And things just keep getting better for the former English teacher.

Friday it was announced that DreamWorks had acquired the rights to adapt his upcoming book The Good Luck of Right Now, about a middle-aged man named Bartholomew Neil, who has always lived with his mother in Philadelphia. “We immediately sparked to Matthew Quick’s book and the heart and humor which is infused in his storytelling,” said DreamWorks’ Holly Bario in a press release. “All of us at DreamWorks are excited to begin developing this story and look to make it a priority at the studio.”
