Sam Raimi i forhandlinger om å regissere Matthew Quicks Love May Fail

Deadline rapporterer at Sam ’Evil Dead’ Raimi er i forhandlinger om å regissere filmatiseringen av Silver Linings Playbook-forfatter Matthew Quicks kommende roman, Love May Fail.

Går forhandlingene i boks, vil adaptasjonen av Quicks roman markere et blockbuster-avbrekk for Raimi, som på 00-tallet har beskjeftiget seg med store produksjoner som Spider-Man-trilogien og Oz the Great and Powerful. Love May Fail vil bli publisert i løpet av juni, 2015.

Forfatteren presenterer handlingen slik:

Portia Kane is having a meltdown. After escaping her ritzy Florida life and her cheating pornographer husband, she finds herself back in South Jersey, a place that remains largely unchanged from the years of her unhappy youth. Lost and alone, looking to find the goodness in the world she believes still exists, Portia sets off to save herself by saving someone else — a beloved high school English teacher who has retired after a horrific scandal.

Will a sassy nun, an ex-heroin addict, a metal-head little boy, and her hoarder mother help or hurt her chances on this madcap quest to restore a good man’s reputation and find renewed hope in the human race? Love May Fail is a story of the great highs and lows of existence: the heartache and daring choices it takes to become the person you know (deep down) you are meant to be.

Tidligere i år ble det kjent at Raimi skal produsere filmatiseringen av den prisbelønnede TV-spillet The Last of Us.
