Bruce Greenwood also stars with Shana Feste helming the pic.
It’s unclear how closely the new pic will follow the 1979 Scott Spencer book or the 1981 Brooke Shields movie. Studio has dated the film for Feb. 14, 2014.
Feste re-wrote the script, which was originally penned by Josh Safran. Universal’s VP of production Kristin Lowe and creative exec Chloe Yellin will oversee “Endless Love” for the studio.
Richardson appears in Lionsgate’s upcoming “Thanks For Sharing” and appeared last year in “Red Lights.” She is repped by ICM Partners, the Schiff Company and Ken McReddie Associates.
