Via THR, the project is based off of Nicola Yoon’s novel, which follows Maddy (Stenberg), a teen who has severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare disease that causes her to be allergic to practically everything.
She has spent 17 years hiding out in her home, only seeing her mother and her nurse, Carla. But when a boy named Olly (Robinson) moves in next door, Maddy begins to fall in love.
Stella Meghie will direct the movie and set to start production in September.
