Sam Raimi may direct Love May Fail; Lizzy Caplan is in talks for Now You See Me 2; Legendary’s family adventure Figment gets a director; new release dates for Jem and the Holograms and more; and the Warcraft movie gets a composer.
Sam Raimi is in talks to direct Love May Fail, an adaptation of the novel by Matthew Quick (Silver Linings Playbook).
Although Love May Fail doesn’t hit bookstores until June of next year, Sony was quick to scoop up the novel and start shopping for directors. Since Silver Linings Playbook, every Quick novel has been in high demand, even those that haven’t actually released.
For Raimi, Love May Fail represents a departure, of sorts, from both the blockbuster and horror material that audiences have come to expect from the director. Still, with Raimi on-board this is sure to be a project worth keeping an eye on.
