Director Gary Ross and producer Nina Jacobson have already teamed up once, to adapt The Hunger Games. Now they have their sights on another work of great literature: Cyrano de Bergerac. There aren't very many details about the project, except that it's a "modern retelling" of the famous story that ... well, I'll let you read it yourself:
"[I]t is understood to be a contemporary story revolving around 'Cyrano de Bergerac', a man who is in love with a woman but is forced to woo her surreptitiously on behalf of a far more handsome but less expressive suitor.  The twist here is the story is told using today’s vast and complex social media tools."

Oh man, I wish I could have been a fly on the wall for this pitch by John Whittington: "It's Cyrano de Bergerac, but with Twitter." Hollywood is truly a hotbed of creativity. (The Hollywood Reporter)
