The latest book from Matt Haig – The Midnight Library – is the third of his to be snapped up for a movie adaptation by StudioCanal.

As the book heads to the top of the bestseller list, StudioCanal has picked up the movie rights to Matt Haig’s latest novel, The Midnight Library.

It tells the story of Nora Seed, who finds herself in a library at a moment between life and death. Then, she can experience all the different lives that she could have had, with the consequences that come with them.

It’s the latest of Haig’s books to be picked up for the screen by StudioCanal, with the company also holding an option on How To Stop Time and A Boy Called Christmas, the latter of which is in post production now.

Haig, in the official press announcement, said that “I am so excited that The Midnight Library film is in the best hands. Having worked with Blueprint and StudioCanal before, it was a no-brainer the moment they offered. I can’t wait to see Nora’s adventures through the multiverse translated to screen”.

Blueprint Pictures is the company that’s making the film with StudioCanal, to be clear.

No word yet on a director or production date, but we’ll keep you posted as we hear more. The book is on sale now.
