#Congrats to #AiF Board member and #director Unjoo Moon on the announcement that she will #direct the Alloy Entertainment #book_adaptation #FranklyInLove for #ParamountPlayers!

The #movie project is inspired by the same-name #novel from #DavidYoon, which TIME magazine called one of the best YA books of all time. It follows high school senior Frank Li, who in an attempt to get the girl of his dreams without upsetting his traditional Korean-American parents, concocts a plan to pretend to date his parent-approved friend Joy, but ultimately is left wondering if he ever really understood love—or himself—at all.

Unjoo's credits include #IAmWoman, the story of legendary, award-winning singer-songwriter #HelenReddy, and #TheZenOfBennett, a feature documentary about #Grammy- and #Emmy-winning singer #TonyBennett.

We are so proud of you Unjoo! Can't wait for the #film to come out!
