DreamWorks has acquired the manuscript to “Silver Linings Playbook” author Matthew Quick’s latest work, “The Good Luck of Right Now.”

The story follows the intertwined lives of four outsiders who, amid grieving over pain and loss in their lives, come together to form a most unlikely family. HarperCollins is planning to publish the book in spring 2014.

“We immediately sparked to Matthew Quick’s book and the heart and humor which is infused in his storytelling,” said Holly Bario, DreamWorks co-prexy of production. “All of us at DreamWorks are excited to begin developing this story and look to make it a priority at the studio.”

Quick is repped by CAA and Sterling Lord Literistic Inc.
