It took six years after the indie smash hit “Little Miss Sunshine” for Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris to make their follow-up “Ruby Sparks,” but it looks like they are wasting no time trying to find their next project. They are currently in talks to direct “The Good Luck of Right Now,” a film based on the Matthew Quick novel, which Mike White (“Enlightened”) adapted. Matthew Quick, as most of you may know, wrote “The Silver Linings Playbook” which was turned into a movie last year and nominated for a whole slew of awards.

A little bit of "writers hired to adapt things" news this Sunday afternoon. DreamWorks has hired Mike White (“School of Rock,” the recently-cancelled “Enlightened”) to adapt the latest novel from Matthew Quick, author of “Silver Linings Playbook.” Quick’s “The Good Luck of Right Now” will be published Spring 2014 and is about a man who takes care of his mother with dementia and falls for a librarian who believes she and her brother were once abducted by aliens.

"Silver Linings Playbook" finally goes properly wide this weekend, hitting just under 3000 screens today, but it's already a fairly unqualified success. Boasting rave reviews, $43 million already in the bank without having gone over 810 screens, and most importantly, eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and being the first film since "Reds" to pick up nods in all four acting categories. And to help get the word out, The Weinstein Company have just dropped a brand new, lengthy 12 minute featurette on the movie which is worth a look whether you've seen a movie or not.
