Hilary Swank and producing partner Molly Smith have acquired feature rights to Emily Giffin’s 2005 debut novel, “Something Borrowed,” which they’ll develop through their 2S Films as a potential starring vehicle for Swank, reports Variety.

Swank and Smith will co-produce “Borrowed” with Aaron Lubin and Pamela Schein Murphy of Wild Ocean Films.

The project, which is out to writers, centers on a Manhattan attorney who becomes involved with her best friend’s fiance following her 30th birthday.

The deal also includes rights to Giffin’s sequel, “Something Blue.”
