Summit Entertainment has picked up feature film rights to The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Emma Watson and Logan Lerman.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower will be directed by Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the script, based on his 1999 tome.

The film is a coming of age story about 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman), an endearing and naïve outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs.

Filming is scheduled to start this summer.
