The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight, from author Jennifer E. Smith, is set over a 24-hour period and follows Hadley and Oliver, who begin to fall for each other on their flight from New York to London. But, as the logline reads, “is it misfortune or fate that separates them when they land? The probability of ever finding each other again seems impossible, but love — and London — may have a way of defying the odds.”
Katie Lovejoy penned the screenplay, after working with Ace on To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Laura Jean. Vanessa Caswill, who was behind the PBS’ Little Women miniseries, is on board to direct.
