Jojo Moyes' 'Last Letter From Your Lover' Is Being Turned Into A Netflix Film

Jojo Moyes' 'Last Letter From Your Lover' Is Being Turned Into A Netflix Film

Author Jojo Moyes has written some of the most tear-jerking romance novels we've read over the past decade - the Me Before You trilogy, need we say anymore?

And now, the British writer's emotional 2010 book, Last Letter From Your Lover, is set to be turned into a feature film for streaming service Netflix in collaboration with StudioCanal.

The romantic drama will star Oscar nominated stars Shailene Woodley and Felicity Jones alongside Joe Alwyn, The Capture's Callum Turner and Sex Education's Ncuti Gatwa - talk about star-studded?

Based on the best-selling book, which sold over three million copies globally, Last Letter From Your Lover is a dual-narrative love story that follows Ellie (Jones), a journalist in modern-day London, who uncovers a series of love letters recounting a star-crossed affair in the 1960s.

That romance between Jennifer Stirling (Woodley) and Anthony O'Hare (Turner) is so intense that Ellie becomes obsessed with finding the couple and discovering how their story ended.

The flick will be directed by Augustine Frizell, who most recently directed the pilot episode of Euphoria, while the script is written by Wanderlust's Nick Payne and The Bridge writer Esta Spalding.

Interestingly, both leads, Shailene Woodley and Felicity Jones, are also serving as executive producers on the upcoming film, which is yet to announce a release date.

Production for the film is currently underway in Mallorca and will soon move to the U.K. to continue shooting in the capital.

The tale of woe starred Emilia Clarke as Louisa Clark, who's cheery outlook is put to the test when she becomes a caregiver for Will Traynor (Sam Claflin), a wealthy young banker left paralyzed from an accident two years prior.

Helping melt Will's cynical attitude, Louisa shows him life is worth living and as their bond deepens, their lives change in ways neither one could have imagined.

The film, which challenges The Notebook on its tear jerk-ability, was a box office smash, earning over £156 million worldwide.

We can't wait!
