Fox 2000 has acquired the rights to the Lauren Oliver novel Delirium. The acquisition is part of a deal that includes other properties from Oliver's company, Paper Lantern Lit. Fox 2000 acquired the rights to Oliver's first novel, Before I Fall last year. Here's the plot description for Delirium below, from Lauren Oliver's official website.
"Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn't understand that once love--the deliria--blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold.
Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway has always looked forward to the day when she'll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: she falls in love."
Paula Mazur will produce the adaptation along with Mitchell Kaplan. No writer or director have been attached to Delirium yet.
