 Director David Slade is taking his young adult franchise film experience (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) and putting it to good use to kick off another adaptation, Matched.  The YA novel from author Ally Condie was previously acquired by Disney, who set Michelle and Kieran Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes:A Game of Shadows) to pen the script.  The book is the first in a trilogy that centers on a young girl living in an uber-controlling society and her rebellious decision to reject an arranged romance and follow her own heart.  Hit the jump for more on Slade’s appointment to the adaptation.
