Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin to Star in MGM’s ‘Me Before You’

“Game of Thrones” actress Emilia Clarke and “Hunger Games” actor Sam Claflin are in negotiations to star in MGM and New Line’s “Me Before You.”

Thea Sharrock will direct.

Based on the Jojo Moyes novel, the story revolves around a girl in a small town who forms an unlikely bond with a recently paralyzed man she’s taking care of.

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber will adapt.

Both thesps are on the rise among Hollywood’s young talent. Clarke recently wrapped production on “Terminator: Genisys” playing Sarah Connor, and Claflin is filming the next two installments of “The Hunger Games” franchise, “Mockingjay Part 1” and “Mockingjay Part 2.”

Both are repped by CAA. Deadline first reported the news.
