Directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton have been tapped to helm an adaptation of Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick’s novel The Good Luck of Right Now.  Per Variety, the duo will direct the project for DreamWorks from a script by Mike White (School of Rock).  The story follows four misfits grieving over pain and lost who come together to “form the most unlikely family.”  Best known for helming the 2006 indie darling Little Miss Sunshine, Faris and Dayton most recently directed last year’s sadly underseen Ruby Sparks.  They’re also attached to direct the biopic I’m So Proud of You, which revolves around childrens television icon Mister Rogers.  There’s no word on which project will be next for the duo, but the sensibility of The Good Luck of Right Now sure seems to be right up their alley.  Hit the jump to read a synopsis for the book.
