ON

Miramax Films and producer Scott Rudin have acquired the Rudolph Delson novel “Maynard and Jennica.” The playwright-turned-screenwriter Liz Meriwether will write the screenplay, says Variety.

Published last year by Houghton Mifflin, the novel tracks the courtship of a young couple in New York. Their relationship evolves through the life-changing events of Sept. 11, 2001.

The novel has been described as an Annie Hall-like tale of unlikely lovers in New York.
