“Jean of the Joneses” (2016) writer-director Stella Meghie’s follow-up is a film adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s debut novel, “Everything, Everything,” which MGM studios developed with Warner Bros, and will be distributed by the latter.
Meghie directs from a script penned by J. Mills Goodloe, based on the YA novel that centers around a 17-year-old girl with severe combined immunodeficiency – causing multiple allergies – which prevents her from leaving the house, only seeing her mother and her nurse, until a boy moves in next door, and she begins to fall in love with him.
Amandla Stenberg, who’s quite busy these days, is starring in the film as Maddy, the girl at the center of the story; she’s joined by Nick Robinson who plays Olly, the boy who moves in next door.
Anika Noni Rose also co-stars in the film, playing Stenberg’s mother.
Warner Bros. has set a May 19, 2017 release date for “Everything, Everything.”
Les Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton of Alloy Entertainment Features are producers.
