The movie rights to author Rudolph Delson’s 2007 novel “Maynard & Jennica” have been optioned to filmmaker RJ Cutler, who is remembered for helming the 2009 Anna Wintour documentary ‘The September Issue,’ Deadline is reporting. The book, which is an urban romantic comedy, follows a New York musician-filmmaker, Maynard Gogarty, who meets Jennica Green on the subway.
