Disney is in negotiations with David Slade to direct Matched, an adaptation of the Ally Condie young-adult novel. The book series revolves around a girl in a dystopian future where choice is taken away, and a young woman falls in love with a guy she has not been matched with. Kieran and Michelle Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes 2) wrote the script and Offspring’s Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman are producing. The third book in the series, Reached, will be published in November by Penguin. Slade directed 30 Days Of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and was supposed to direct Daredevil before backing out to direct the pilot for Hannibal. He is repped by WME and Anonymous Content.
