Aidan Quinn, Penelope Ann Miller, John Mahoney, Anthony Edwards, Rebecca De Mornay and Kevin Weisman are all negotiating to star in Flipped.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Rob Reiner is close to signing up the sextet for his adaptation of Wendelin Van Draanen's young-adult novel.

Taking place between 1957 and 1963, it focuses on a boy and a girl who, despite not seeing eye-to-eye, eventually share a kiss in their teens.

Edwards and De Mornay have been cast as the boy's parents, while Mohaney will play his grandfather. Quinn and Miller have been lined up for the girl's parents and Weisman the part of her mentally challenged uncle.

Reiner is the director of This Is Spinal Tap, Stand By Me, When Harry Met Sally and the recent Bucket List. He wrote the Flipped script alongside Andy Scheinman.
