Warner Bros. Adapting ‘Flawed’ as Movie From ‘PS, I Love You’ Author (EXCLUSIVE)

Warner Bros. is adapting “Flawed,” the first young adult novel from “PS, I Love You” author Cecelia Ahern, Variety has learned exclusively.

The studio has optioned movie rights to “Flawed,” to be published by Feiwel and Friends (an imprint of the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group) on April 5. A national author tour is planned for Ahern.

Wendy Finerman and Michelle Chydzik will produce. Finerman and Ahern have a long-standing relationship that began when Finerman produced Hilary Swank’s “P.S. I Love You,” which grossed $156 million worldwide for Warner Bros. in 2007.

Finerman’s other credits include “Forrest Gump” and “The Devil Wears Prada.”

“Flawed” is set in a world where people deemed “flawed” are branded with F tattoos and forced to live as second-class citizens. When a teenager attempts to stand up for a “flawed” passenger on a bus, she’s not only deemed “flawed” herself, but becomes an unlikely poster girl for a growing rebellion.

Cate Adams is overseeing the project for Warner Bros.

Ahern’s debut novel was “PS, I Love You,” was published in 2004. She also created and produced the ABC comedy “Samantha Who?” starring Christina Applegate. Her other novels include “The Gift,” “How to Fall in Love” and “The Year I Met You.”
