POPSUGAR: Any updates on the Something Blue movie?
Emily Giffin: Yes! I keep telling my readers, "It's happening soon, it's happening soon!" And it's really happening soon. The script is in such great, great shape. They did a fourth version of it. I wrote the first, and then the production company hired this amazing husband-wife team, and they have a really great dynamic that's almost like the banter between Ethan and Darcy. They brought such perspective to it but were still really true to the characters. It's so funny.
PS: I'm so excited. I love that book.
EG: I feel that way too. I have such high expectations. That's probably my favorite of my books, so the fact that I'm sitting here saying that I'm glad they rewrote my script, and I think it's better, and I love it? It's so funny, but it has a lot of heart. They did some things that I think really work for film, but it's so true to the characters. I think everyone's going to be really happy with it. I think Kate [Hudson] and John [Krasinski] are going to love it.
