MGM takes rights to Jojo Moyes’ ‘Me Before You’

Bestselling romance novel set for feature adaptation

MGM has picked up feature rights to Jojo Moyes’ romance novel “Me Before You.”

The novel has sold over 500,000 copies and is currently on the New York Times bestseller list. Story centers on a small town girl caught between dead-end jobs and a high-profile, successful man who becomes wheelchair bound following an accident.

“Jojo’s book is frankly one of the most unique, emotional and engaging love stories written in recent years,” said MGM production chief Jonathan Glickman.

Cassidy Lange will oversee the project for the studio.

Moyes’ first novel “Sheltering Rain” was published in 2002.

The film rights deal was negotiated by Jessica Cooper of Curtis Brown for Moyes.
