Stella Meghie Will Direct MGM's Adaptation of Nicola Yoon's 'Everything, Everything'

cover-for-everything-everythingIt was announced about a year ago that a film adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s debut novel, “Everything, Everything,” was set up at MGM studios, with J. Mills Goodloe scripting the YA (young adult) novel centered around a 17-year-old girl with severe combined immunodeficiency – causing multiple allergies – which prevents her from leaving the house.

It’s been announced today that writer/director Stella Meghie (whose feature film debut, “Jean of the Joneses,” is currently touring the film festival circuit) is now attached to direct the adaptation of Yoon’s best-selling novel which was first published last September.

Les Morgenstein and Elysa Dutton of Alloy Entertainment Features will produce.

Meghie’s “Jean of the Joneses” (which stars Taylour Paige, Sherri Shepherd, Gloria Reuben) next screens at the Los Angeles Film Festival, which kicked off today. The film was also good enough for CAA to sign Meghie for representation in all areas. In addition to “Everything, Everything,” she’s currently developing a pilot for Warner Bros TV.

If you’d read it “Everything, Everything,” please share your reactions to it. For the rest of you, if you’d like to buy a copy, you can do so by clicking here, or the book cover above.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the news of Meghie’s attachment.
