Miguel Arteta is to direct Elle Fanning in the movie adaptation of Jennifer Niven’s YA novel, All the Bright Places.
Niven will write the movie’s script, with Demarest Media on board to finance and produce the picture alongside Mazur/Kaplan, who brought the package to them. Production is slated to begin in Spring 2016.
Fanning will play the the role of Violet in the love story about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die. Arteta most recently directed Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and earlier lensed Cedar Rapids and Youth in Revolt.
Niven said Monday in a statement, “All the Bright Places is a very personal story for me. Mazur/Kaplan, Miguel, and Demarest Media have given the book and me the most wonderfully supportive, creative home, and they are as invested in Finch and Violet as I am.” [Source]
