Gidden Media and Good Universe have announced plans to adapt the novel Forever, Interrupted into a film, with Dakota Johnson (“Fifty Shades” film trilogy) set to star in the lead role. The film will be produced by Gidden Media’s Amy Baer, with Reid serving as an executive producer.
The adaptation promises to be a moving and emotional portrayal of Elsie’s journey through grief and healing, as she comes to terms with the loss of her husband and discovers the true meaning of love and family.
“Forever, Interrupted” by Taylor Jenkins Reid is a heart-wrenching novel that tells the story of a young woman named Elsie Porter, who falls in love with and marries the love of her life, Ben Ross, after just six months of dating.
However, their happiness is short-lived as Ben dies in a tragic accident only nine days after their wedding. The novel is a poignant exploration of grief, loss, and love, as Elsie navigates the complexities of grieving for someone she barely had the chance to know.
