Ally Condie's 'Matched' novel seeking director for movie adaptation

Ever since news broke that Disney gained the movie rights to Ally Condie's 'Matched' Series fans have been anxiously awaiting production news.

Today, @Adammshankman tweeted about the status of the first 'Matched' movie saying:

"@luv2act12: @adammshankman Can we have any updates on the production status of #Matched ? :)" looking 4 director!

This is exciting news for fans of the series who are currently awaiting the third book in the trilogy scheduled for release November 13, 2012.

The series takes place in a dystopian future, in a society where at age 17, you are matched with your "perfect mate" based on an algorithm. In 'Matched' the story follows Cassia through her matching process and suspicion on how the society works after in error, she is shown TWO matches. I can't say too much more without spoiling, but it is a great YA novel and the the sequal 'Crossed' is just as amazing.
