Timur Bekmambetov picks up a One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy
Timur Bekmambetov's Bazelevs production company has nabbed film rights to Stephen Tunney's young adult novel "One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy".
The book seems like a coming-of-age tale mixed with a superhero origin story.
Set 2000 years in the future, novel's protag is 16-year-old Hieronymus Rexaphin, who lives on the now-colonized moon, where he meets a girl from Earth who is inexplicably drawn to him because of his special -- some say dangerous -- condition, which gives him the ability to see the future path of time and matter.
Edward Ricourt (NOW YOU SEE ME) will write the script. Bekmambetov and Michele Wolkoff are producing for Bazelevs, and Guy Stodel (BE KIND REWIND) will executive produce.
The real question here is- are there any YA novels left to adapt? Those studios sure have been going insane with all these, haven't they? Everyone wants their own franchise and now that the buzz for THE HUNGER GAMES is really building (is everyone you know reading through those books too?) everyone wants a piece of the pie. More as we hear it.
