Timur Bekmambetov producing big screen adaptation of 100% Lunar Boy

One name you guys should be familiar with is Timur Bekmambetov. The guys has been all over our genre in the past few years as both a director and a producer, and it doesn't look like he's planning on stopping anytime soon!

According to Variety Bekmambetov's Bazelevs banner has just snatched up the rights to Stephen Tunney's young adult novel ONE HUNDRED PERCENT LUNAR BOY. I know, I know. You read 'young adult' and you automatically roll your eyes. I'm with you on that one people, but lets hold off on the judgement for a quick second. Peep the rundown for LUNAR BOY:

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.

And let the judging commence! What do you guys think? LUNAR BOY sound like it have some potential? Scribe Edward Ricourt has been tapped with the task of adapting this one for the big screen with Bazelevs' Bekmambetov and Michele Wolkoff producing. Guy Stodel will serve as executive producer.
