An Education Director Gets “One Day”

“An Education” director Lone Scherfig is in negotiations to helm the romantic comedy “One Day” for Color Force and Random House Films says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on author David Nicholls’s novel, the story revolves around Dexter and Emma, who meet for the first time during their graduation in 1988 and proceed to meet one day a year for the next 20 years.

In “When Harry Met Sally …” fashion, the story tracks their lives and loves until they realize they were meant for each other.

Nicholls (“Starter for 10”) will adapt the script himself. Nina Jacobson is producing.
