Months after setting acclaimed theatre director Thea Sharrock to make her directorial debut with Me Before You, Warner Bros. has locked an August 21, 2015 release for the MGM-produced lit adaptation. Brit author Jojo Moyes penned the original script based on her 2012 novel and (500) Days Of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber then came aboard as writers. Story follows small-town girl Lou and wheelchair-bound Will, who share a series of life-changing adventures when he hires her as his caretaker. Sharrock’s TV directing resume includes Sam Mendes’ BBC miniseries The Hollow Crown and Call The Midwife.
