The screenwriting duo behind (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now are set to tackle another adaptation.  Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber will pen Lionsgate's production of Amor Towles' Rules of Civility.  The novel centers on a young woman living in Greenwich Village in 1937 who is thrust into New York's high society after a chance encounter that grows into a year-long journey.  Published in 2011, Rules of Civility quickly drew comparisons to F. Scott Fitzgerald and Truman Capote for its similar themes.  Hit the jump for more. THR reports that Neustadter and Weber have added Rules of Civility to their book-to-film to-do list.  The duo already have Rosaline, a screen translation of When You Were Mine that tells the story of Romeo and Juliet through the filter of Romeo's jilted lover, set up for Shawn Levy to produce at Fox 2000.  They're also adapting the young adult novel The Fault in Our Stars, »
