Greg Mottola ("Superbad," "Paul") is in early talks to pen an adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides' coming-of-age novel "The Marriage Plot" for Sony and Scott Rudin Productions reports Variety.

The story deals with a love triangle in the early 1980's with a bookish female English major caught up in the affections of two men. The romance of her favorite 19th century love stories begin to seep into her own life.

Eugenides won a Pulitzer Prize for the novel "Middlesex" and also penned "The Virgin Suicides." It's undetermined as yet if Mottola will direct "Marriage Plot".
