Actress Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World, The Hate U Give) has signed on to star in the feature adaptation of the YA novel The Distance From Me to You, from author Marina Gessner. New Line Cinema won the bidding was to produce the film for HBO Max, and Tiffany Paulsen (Nancy Drew, Holidate) is set to adapt the screenplay, and Carpenter and Danielle Fishel are executive producing.
“In the novel, two teens running from very different lives, meet and fall in love on the Appalachian trail. But what starts as a coming-of-age story of first love soon turns into a wilderness-thriller when they find themselves dangerously lost and fighting for survival.”
This sounds like it could end up being a solid story. Any interest?
