David Slade to Direct Matched
David Slade has beat out several other directors to make the adaptation Matched for Walt Disney Pictures.
The project is an adaptation of Ally Condie's young adult novel, published in 2010 as the first part of a trilogy. The story is set in a futuristic world where government officials tell people how to live their lives, with everything from what books they should read to what people they should fall in love with. The plot revolves around a young woman who turns down her appointed romance to forge her own path. The final book in the trilogy, Reached, was published in November.
