'Paper Man' Duo in Talks to Adapt 'Matched' for Disney

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney are currently penning the sequel to last year's "Sherlock Holmes," which starred Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.

Michelle and Kieran Mulroney are in negotiations to adapt Matched, a futuristic love story that Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing for Disney.

Set in a future society where people are told what to read, what to watch, what to believe and who to love, the story centres on a young woman who rejects an arranged romance and chooses her own path.

The project is based on the novel Matched, written by Ally Condie and being published by Dutton Juvenile on Nov. 30.

The Mulroneys wrote Paper Man, last year’s indie that featured Ryan Reynolds as a superheroic imaginary best friend of a failed novelist played by Jeff Daniels. The CAA and Management 360-repped duo are working on the sequel to Warner Bros.’s Sherlock Holmes.
