Six Are in Talks for Flipped


The Hollywood Reporter says Aidan Quinn, Penelope Ann Miller, John Mahoney, Anthony Edwards, Rebecca De Mornay and Kevin Weisman are in various stages of commitment to the Rob Reiner-directed feature adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen’s young-adult novel, “Flipped.”

The book, published in 2001 by Knopf, revolves around the confusing romantic developments of antagonistic boy and girl neighbors who eventually share a kiss when they reach their teens. The story takes place from 1957-63 as the kids grow up from ages 7 to 13.

Quinn and Miller are taking on the roles of the girl’s parents and Weisman her mentally challenged uncle. Edwards and De Mornay are playing the boy’s parents, and Mahoney will play his grandfather.

The film is moving toward a late-June shoot in Michigan.
