A Little Excitement


From Publisher's Weekly-Page to Screen

Fox 2000 has optioned Megan Abbott’s Dare Me, which was released by Reagan Arthur Books in July. The option was done on behalf of producer Karen Rosenfelt (The Devil Wears Prada), who is currently developing feature adaptations of Marcus Zusak’s The Book Thief and Daniel Handler’s Why We Broke Up. The novel, which explores the dark underside of competitive teenage cheerleading and was pitched by the publisher as “Fight Club for girls,” is being adapted for the screen by Abbott.

Sylvie Rabineau and Jill Gillet at RWSG Literary did the deal on behalf of Dan Conaway at Writers House.

Wow - very cool.

Now that's a one line description even Hollywood can understand.

Let's hope it gets made.
