before-i-fallEXCLUSIVE: Fox 2000 has optioned the rights to the Lauren Oliver teen novel Before I Fall, with Maria Maggenti set to adapt it. The book brings a Groundhog Day approach to high school. A female student finds herself living what may be her last day on earth over and over, until she gets things right. Jon Shestack will produce and Ginny Pennekamp will co-produce. Maggenti most recently did a rewrite on Monte Carlo, the Fox 2000 co-production with Regency and Walden Media that has Tom Bezucha directing and Selena Gomez starring. APA-repped Maggenti was a staff writer on 90210 and wrote and directed Puccini for Beginners. Book deal was brokered by Kohner Agency and Foundry and Carla Hacken’s steering the project for Fox 2000.
