Why did it take so long to produce All the Bright Places?

The history of the project has a significant lack of detail, especially as the project was announced in 2014.

Production may have been delayed due to various reasons such as a lack of funding, scheduling issues and finding a distributor.

Once principal photography began in October 2018, it wrapped up a few months later in January 2019. The film was in post-production for the majority of the year before it was announced the film was completed on November 5th, 2019.
