Grey Gardens Director Michael Sucsy Will Now Take THE VOW

Variety is reporting that director Michael Sucsy, who directed the award-winning Grey Gardens last year for HBO, has come on board to direct The Vow.   The film will be based on the true story of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter, who were hit by a car two months into their marriage.  The accident left Krickitt in a coma and when she awoke she could remember everyone but had no memories of her husband, their relationship, or their marriage.  This lead to Kim having to woo her again until the couple fell in love…again.  As you can tell, it’s easy to see why their story is ripe for a film adaptation given the success of recent romantic tearjerkers like The Notebook and Dear John.

Suscy will also be rewriting the current script by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (He’s Just Not That Into You, Never Been Kissed) and I’m going to assume that The Vow will be his next project after he is done working on his next film, The Goree Girls.
