All the Bright Places‘s move to the screen has a director on board.

Miguel Arteta (Cedar RapidsYouth in Revolt) was announced Monday as the helmer of the project, starring Elle Fanning as Violet.

All the Bright Places traces the relationship between two completely different teenagers, Violet and Finch, that begins when each contemplate suicide. Written by Jennifer Niven, the heart-wrenching book currently sits at No. 5 on the New York Times best-seller list.

“Violet and Finch’s achingly heartfelt and authentic story is the most convincing portrayal of teenage life I have ever come across,” Arteta said in a statement. “It’s such a privilege to bring it to the screen with the help of its engaging author and the great support of Demarest Media and The Mazur Kaplan Company, who couldn’t be more passionate about Jennifer’s book and this adaptation.”

Arteta will direct a script written by Niven. Production is scheduled to begin in spring 2016.
