Director David Slade has signed on to helm the cinematic adaptation of the Y.A. sci-fi romance novel by Ally Condie "Matched" for Walt Disney Pictures.
Slade is best known for directing the third film in the wildly popular "Twilight" franchise, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse", but some may remember his earlier cult favorites "Hard Candy" and "30 Days of Night".
The first installment in the three-book series, "Matched", is described thusly:
In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die. Cassia has always trusted their choices, but she begins to question just how perfect her world really is when she notices things are not what they seem. As Cassia begins to doubt the Society’s infallibility, she is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
