Alcon Entertainment, Alloy Entertainment and Kira Davis’ 8:38 Productions have reteamed to acquire Ann Brashares‘ latest young adult novel, The Here And Now, which was released this week by Delacorte Press. The three companies previously joined to collaborate on Brashares’ bestselling Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants novels, turning them into a 2005 feature film starring Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara and Amber Tamblyn and a 2008 sequel. Both were released by Warner Bros under Alcon’s output deal there.
Davis will produce the Here And Now adaptation with Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. Alloy president Les Morgenstein and VP of Alloy features Elysa Dutton will also produce. The novel is an epic romantic thriller about a girl from the future who might be able to save the world…if she lets go of the one thing she’s found to hold on to.
“The unforgettable characters in Ann’s novel helped us realize the potential for this project to thrill and captivate audiences,” said Morgenstein in the release announcing the deal. “To be working again with Alcon is also very exciting for all of us at Alloy.”
