“Little Miss Sunshine” helmers Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris are in negotiations to direct “The Good Luck of Right Now” for DreamWorks.

Mike White penned the script which is based on the Matthew Quick novel.

Quick’s book follows the intertwined lives of four people, who are all outsiders in their own right. However, in the wake of grieving over pain and loss in their lives, they come together to form the most unlikely family.

Dayton and Faris most recently directed the Fox Searchlight pic “Ruby Sparks” and were also attached to direct the biopic “I’m So Proud of You,” which followed a journalist at the end of his rope whose life changes when he is offered the chance to do a piece on Fred Rogers.

Dayton, Faris and White are all repped by UTA.
