The film adaptation of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s bestseller “One True Loves” has set a trio of buzzy actors at the lead.
The film will be directed by Andy Fickman (“She’s The Man,” “Parental Guidance”), and follows the moving love story of a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between the husband she has long thought dead and the fiancé who has finally brought her back to life.
Though not yet attached to a distributor, production is set to begin after summer in Massachusetts. Willie Kutner, Fickman, Betsy Sullenger, Michael Jefferson and Sarah Finn are producing the project with the author’s husband, Alex Jenkins Reid. Adam Beasley is executive producing. Finn is also casting. CAA Media Finance is handling North American sales.

Her latest novel, “Malibu Rising,” was released on June 1. She is repped by WME, Stuart Rosenthal and Circle of Confusion.
