My bestselling 2008 novel YA novel Little Brother has been optioned by Paramount, with Don Murphy (Natural Born Killers, Transformers) as the producer.
Suffice it to say, I'm pretty excited about this.
The rights to the Orwellian-themed novel were picked up by Angry Films in 2010, with Don Murphy now bringing the property to Paramount. Murphy will continue to produce via his shingle, with Gaby Canton developing for Paramount.
Sources cite that the studio is currently securing a writer to script, seeing the project tonally as a cross between the Bourne series, the Divergent series, and the acclaimed BBC anthology TV series Black Mirror.
