Stephen Chbosky will direct A Thousand Boy Kisses, a Netflix film based on Tillie Cole's best-seller of the same name. Liz Maccie will write the screenplay for the feature film. With A Thousand Boy Kisses, Chbosky and Maccie reunite after the Vince Vaughn starrer Nonnas. David Hoberman will produce the film for Netflix under his Hobie Films banner.

The novel A Thousand Boy Kisses follows teenager Rune Kristiansen's return from his hometown of Norway to Blossom Grove in Georgia, only to discover that his girlfriend from childhood, Poppy Litchfield, stopped communicating with him inexplicably. Cole's novel also has a second part, which will come out this year.

Chbosky is most popular as the director of adaptations of Wonder and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. On the other hand, Maccie is best known for writing and co-producing the Freeform show Siren. Besides Nonnas, Maccie has written such titles as Black and Blue, The Thirst, and A Loud House Christmas.
