In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Simon Beaufoy will be writing Leap Year for Spyglass Entertainment.

Amy Adams will be starring in the film. Anand Tucker will be directing.

The film follows a woman who goes to Dublin to propose to her man on leap day, Feb. 29. Apparently, this is an Irish tradition where women do the honors. She runs into inclement weather and finds herself dealing with a tough Irish innkeeper in order to complete her mission.

Harry Elfont and Deb Kaplan wrote the initial script that got the project rolling and got Adams.
