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.
