Fox 2000 Finds Delirium


Fox 2000 has plans to develop Lauren Oliver’s recently-released novel Delirium into a feature film, Variety reports.

The book, which came out earlier this month, is Oliver’s followup to the successful “Before I Fall” (previously optioned by Fox 2000). The official description of the novel is as follows:

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love–the deliria–blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold.

Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the government demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Haloway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.

But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: she falls in love.
