Mulroneys close to being ‘Matched’ by Disney

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney are in talks to write the screenplay for the futuristic love story “Matched” for Disney.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing.

The screenplay will be based on the novel of the same name by Ally Condie. Dutton Juvenile will publish the book on November 30.

The film will be set in a future society where people are told what to think, do and who to love. A young woman rejects a prepared romance and sets out to find her real love.

The Mulroneys wrote last year’s independent film “Paper Man,” that starred Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds. They are currently working on the script for Warner Bros.’s   sequel to “Sherlock Holmes.” Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
