Paramount Pictures has acquired poet Marisa de los Santos' first novel, "Love Walked In." Sarah Jessica Parker is attached to star.
Michael London Prods., which recently inked an overall deal at Paramount, will produce with Parker, who brought the property to London. The duo is currently at work on "Family Stone," previously known as "Hating Her," and starts shooting next week for Fox 2000.
"Love" is the story of a sophisticated thirtysomething woman who thinks she has found the man of her dreams, but he has an 11-year-old daughter he left when the girl was 2. When the child shows up one day, a relationship develops between the child and the woman.
Due at the end of December, "Love" is being published by Dutton Adult.
Parker this month signed on to star in another Paramount project, "Failure to Launch," which Scott Rudin is producing.
London is coming off the success of "Sideways," which has swept a flurry of major awards this season. London is also in preproduction on "The Illusionist," which Bob Yari is financing.
Parker is repped by CAA. The book and author were represented by Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency.
