In the upcoming movie, Shaw Landon loves Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule, a fiery-tempered rebel tattoo artist doesn’t have time for a good girl pre-med student like Shaw – even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule must figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love…or each other.

Nick Cassavetes, who directed The Notebook, serves as director for the film. Sharon Soboil, who adapted After We Fell and After Ever Happy, penned the script.

Marked Men is looking at an early 2024 release. Check out what author Jay Crownover said about the movie below…

Via Instagram, If anyone told me years ago I would be announcing my very first book becoming a movie, just a few weeks after the 10 year anniversary of the publication, I would’ve never believed it.

My childhood dream of being an author came true on accident when I published Rule. It was an accident because I had no idea what I was doing, or any clue if I was blessed with any kind of talent. Rule changed all of that… And now he’s making another dream come true. It’s unbelievable. HIS POWER! And honestly the power of readers globally who have made Rule the sensation that he is. This couldn’t have happened with out you guys. 💚

I’m so honored and excited that all the incredible people both in front of the camera (everyone who was on set is raving about Chase and Sydney’s chemistry) and behind the scenes love Rule and Shaw (and the rest of the Marked Men) as much as my readers do.

I get to say for the rest of my life that Nick Cassavetes (the director) liked Rule as much, if not more then the freaking Notebook! 😆 That’s right, the director of one of the most legendary romance movies of all time is helming the URule adaptation. He’s also a giant man, seriously so tall, and he’s very tattooed, so he’s like double qualified to being Rule’s story to life.

Don’t be fooled by the first look, they filmed in winter so it was COLD. Everyone is inked up… I promise.

I’m obviously dying with excitement over this news and can’t wait to share all the things movie related with everyone going forward. I’ll have a dedicated page for all movie related stuff on my website.
