Jon Chu Set To Direct “Matched”

“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” director Jon M. Chu is in negotiations to direct the film adaptation of Ally Condie’s young-adult novel “Matched”.

The action is set in a future society where people are told what to read, what to watch, what to believe and who to love. The story centers on a young woman who rejects an arranged romance and chooses her own path.

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney (“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”) wrote the script, while Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing.

David Slade was previously linked to helm the project.
