CBS Films has acquired Bill Shapiro’s OTHER PEOPLE’S LOVE LETTERS for film. The film was scripted by Bethany Ashton Wolf, and Laurence Mark is producing with Jonathan Shukat, with Tamara Chestna and Eric Bromberg executive producing. Tom Bezucha, director of The Family Stone and Monte Carlo, will direct.
Bill Shapiro once stumbled upon an old love letter that wasn’t his, and he’s been collecting them ever since. OTHER PEOPLE’S LOVE LETTERS reprints 150 of the hundreds of such letters he’s gathered over the years. Hailed as “painfully entertaining” (Esquire) and “addictive” (O Magazine), Shapiro followed it up with OTHER PEOPLE’S REJECTION LETTERS in 2010.
