6th Jun 2019
The filmmakers who brought us 2018’s Netflix film adaptation of Jenny Han’s teen romance novel, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, are reportedly re-teaming to adapt another young adult (YA) novel. This time? Replica by Lauren Oliver.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ACE Entertainment’s Matt Kaplan and Michael Fimognari are teaming up to adapt the best-selling YA novel for the screen.
Kaplan was a producer on the first To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Fimognari was the director of photography, the duo are both on board for the upcoming sequel which has already wrapped filming and is slated for a 2020 release. However, Fimognari had a role change for the highly-anticipated sequel, making his directorial debut for round two. We’re already counting down the days until we see what’s next for Lara Jean Covey (played by Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo).

The pair are clearly onto a winning formula if the success of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is anything to go on, striking just the right tone with the adaptation of this best-selling novel. This is just one of the reasons why the news of a new YA project from Kaplan and Fimognari is causing a stir.
For fans of the novel itself, Replica, the news that this popular book from the best-selling author of Before I Fall, is being adapted by this dream team is also reassuring. When the right people bring a book to life on the screen, it extends the love and enjoyment of that particular story to the next level and also introduces the story to a whole new audience who are keen on screens but less so on books.
If you’re unfamiliar with the story, Lauren Oliver’s novel Replica is one coming-of-age story told from the perspective of two teenage girls, Gemma and Lyra. In a clever twist, it’s a ‘flip book’ so readers can choose whether they read either Gemma or Lyra’s account in full or turn the book over to flip to the other story after each chapter.
The story has a compelling plot involving a mysterious research facility, conspiracy, teen drama and of course, replicas. Thanks to the two different perspectives, the story is actually perfect for a screen adaptation, with a camera much more easily able to flip between two different characters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oliver, the author’s novel, has written the screenplay for the adaptation and per the publication, production will begin in early 2020. So, there’s still time to fall in love with the story in book form before it hits the big screen.
