Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to star in the adaptation of Daniel Handler’s Why We Broke Up. Handler is also known for writing the Lemony Snickett series.
Steinfeld will play Min, a high school sophomore and cinephile who enjoys hanging out with her friends at her favorite coffee shop. She falls hard for Ed, a senior and captain of the basketball team, and she gets caught up in their whirlwind romance. The film unfolds a couple of weeks after the break up, when she dumps a letter and box of seemingly meaningless mementos on his porch. Script was written by Handler, and Twilight Saga‘s Karen Rosenfelt is producing.
What do you think about this book being made into a movie and about Steinfeld being vast as Min?
