As for direction, Greg Berlanti is signed on to this project. In the past, Berlanti has produced successful TV shows such as Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. We are feeling confident that he is the perfect person to bring Simon to life and can’t wait to see the movie magic! Fault In Our Stars producers Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner at Temple Hill along with Divergent producer Pouya Shahbazian at New Leaf have committed to the project as well.
Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda follows the story of Simon Spier, a 16-year-old not-so-openly gay student. When an email written by Simon falls into the wrong hands, he becomes at risk of his secret going public. Simon is forced to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out— in a way that won’t alienate his friends, compromise himself or ruin a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he hasn’t even met yet.
Simon does not have a release date just yet, but we are on the lookout for an announcement and will keep you posted!
For now here’s a #swoony GIF of Colton Hayes.
