Exclusive Media has optioned all rights to Stewart O’Nan’s latest novel, “The Odds: A Love Story.”

Company is developing and producing with Le Grisbi Prods. and LBI Entertainment. Exclusive Media co-chairmen Nigel Sinclair and Guy East made the announcement Tuesday.

Exclusive will produce the feature film project with Julie Yorn of LBI Entertainment and John Lesher and Christina Liao of Le Grisbi Prods.

“Odds,” currently being packaged by the producers, follows a couple on the verge of bankruptcy and divorce who travel to Niagara Falls, the place of their honeymoon, to gamble what’s left of their life savings and, in the process, rekindle their love for one another.

Matt Jackson will shepherd the project on behalf of Exclusive Media. The book option was brokered by Sylvie Rabineau of the Rabineau, Wachter, Sanford and Gillett Agency.
