Lord & Miller Keen On “The Rosie Project”

“The LEGO Movie” and “22 Jump Street” directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have been linked to a film adaptation of Graeme Simsion’s “The Rosie Project” which Sony Pictures has optioned the screen rights to.

“The Fault In Our Stars” scribes Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber are set to adapt the script following Simsion who took a first pass on it. While the directors are developing, they won’t commit to the project until the script is done.

The story follows a professor of genetics who may suffer from Asperger’s and has never been on a second date until he embarks upon The Wife Project, designing a questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner.

Said partner would be a punctual, non-drinking, non-smoking female who will fit in with his regimented lifestyle. However when an unorthodox and free-spirited woman named Rosie appears, she may just be his perfect match.
