Lionsgate is planning to adapt The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. The quirky romance novel follows a thirty-year-old woman with Asperger syndrome, who is inexperienced with romance and intimacy, and so she hires an escort, however, their relationship grows to be so much more.
Deadline describes the novel to be like a combination of “50 Shades Of Grey, Pretty Woman and Crazy Rich Asians.” After reading the description I think it’s also a bit like The Rosie Project. Originally Pilgrim Media Group bought the rights to the novel and Lionsgate Motion Picture Group decided to collaborate for the project.
