Sam Claflin and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke are in negotiations to star in MGM’s Me Before You, reports Deadline. The movie is based on a novel of same name by Jojo Moyes.
The official synopsis from Goodreads for the book:
Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.
What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.
Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that.
What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time
Thea Sharrock is set to direct the adaptation, which is slated for an August, 2015 release.
