Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver is being adapted into a movie! Currently, it's in pre-production and according to hollywood reporter a  director has just signed on for the film.

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss?

Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last.Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

Fox 2000 is the production company behind the movie adaptation. Gina Prince-Bythewood has signed on to direct the movie. She is known for writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees. Also check out Lauren Oliver's blog, where she discusses the choice of director.
