This just in. Dreamworks has picked up the film rights for Rainbow Rowell's young adult novel Eleanor & Park. Rowell tweets her excitement not only about the book being turned into a movie, but also about being able to write the screenplay for it!

DreamWorks is giving me a chance to write the screenplay. Even though I've never written one before. (Suckers.)— Rainbow Rowell (@rainbowrowell) April 2, 2014
Eleanor & Park is told from two alternating perspectives and we're interested to see how this will translate on film. There hasn't been any news on casting, but we did dream up our own Eleanor and Park late last year. Who would you cast?
