Yet another new project for Toni on the horizon which, once again, sounds very intriguing. According to Deadline, Toni Collette has just optioned the novel and screenplay The Best of Adam Sharp from red hot author Graeme Simsion who also penned The Rosie Project set up over at Tri-Star. Adam Sharp, which is kind of a High Fidelity for 40-somethings, is one of the first that Collette has brought to her newly formed production company Vocab Films. Her producing partner is Jen Turner. The Best of Adam Sharp (published via St. Martin’s Press) is about a man (Adam) on the cusp of fifty who is restless as his marriage has gone stale. He can’t quite forget a romance he had twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed woman named Angelina Brown who taught him what it meant to find—and then lose—love. He wonders how different would his life be if he hadn’t let her go. Out of the blue, he gets a one word email from Angelina. He responds and his life takes a significant turn. Collette will play the lead female role, Angelina.
