The Selection follows America Singer, chosen as one of 35 girls to compete to win Prince Maxon’s heart. HarperTeen recently bought two new books in the series, which will follow a descendant of one of the main characters.

Thea Sharrock previously directed the adaptation of JoJo Moyes’ controversial adult novel Me Before You.

According to Deadline, Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures and Pouya Shabazian will produce. Competitors for the film rights to The Selection included CW, who launched two separate attempts at TV pilots for the show. Screenwriter Katie Lovejoy wrote the adaptation.
