‘The Here and Now’ Movie Based on Ann Brashare’s Thriller in Development at Alcon

Alcon Entertainment, Alloy Entertainment and Kira Davis’ 8:38 Productions have bought movie rights to Ann Brashare’s just-published romantic thriller “The Here and Now.”

Brashares previously collaborated with the three companies on the two “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films.

Davis is producing with Alcon Entertainment co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove along with Alloy president Les Morgenstein and VP Elysa Dutton.

“The Here and Now,” released April 8 by Delacorte Press, centers on a 17-year-old from the future who may be able to save the world. She comes from a world where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic.

Alcon’s most recent film was “Prisoners,” directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. The company, which has a distribution deal with Warner Bros., produced sci-fi drama “Transcendence,” starring Johnny Depp. Wally Pfister’s directorial debut will hit theaters on April 18.
