Jojo Moyes to Script 'One Plus One' Movie


I'm still waiting for more news on the screen adaptation of Jojo Moyes poignant and funny Me Before You; outside of the assignment of a director [Thea Sharrock] and the screenwriting pair of Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter, there hasn't been any new news since the announcement of the August 21, 2015 release date. 

But big news broke today on another Jojo Moyes project as we're learning that not only has Moyes most recent novel, One Plus One, already been optioned by Hollywood BUT the author will be writing the screenplay herself. Very good news for those of us in the Moyes fan club! 


Have you read One Plus One yet because I haven't had the time or the cashola to check it out, and people seem to be loving it. God, I wish publishers would send me free copies like they do a lot of the book bloggers. [Shameless hint, hint]

Here's how the publisher describes the book, pulled from Jojo Moyes website
Suppose your life sucks. A lot. Your husband has done a vanishing act, your teenage stepson is being bullied, and your math whiz daughter has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you can’t afford to pay for. That’s Jess’s life in a nutshell—until an unexpected knight in shining armor offers to rescue them. Only Jess’s knight turns out to be Geeky Ed, the obnoxious tech millionaire whose vacation home she happens to clean. But Ed has big problems of his own, and driving the dysfunctional family to the Math Olympiad feels like his first unselfish act in ages . . . maybe ever. One Plus One is Jojo Moyes at her astounding best. You’ll laugh, you’ll weep, and when you flip the last page, you’ll want to start all over again.
That's all I need to know! How about you all, any casting suggestions from the One Plus One book fans out there?

  1. I liked this one--it might be second favorite after Me Before You. I liked her other two that have pubbed here in the States but didn't love them. I can easily see this one as a film, with a Hugh Grant-type playing the rich guy.

    Sim, you should try netgalley or Edelweiss and see if you could get digital downloads to read. I know other bloggers who have gone that route to get the books they want.
