EXCLUSIVE: Reel FX and Andrew Adamson’s Strange Weather have acquired screen rights to Monument 14, the first installment of a young adult novel trilogy by Emmy Laybourne that Brad Peyton will adapt to direct. Reel FX, which has a partnership with Strange Weather, will produce alongside Adamson and Aron Warner, with Jeff Fierson exec producing and overseeing.

The first novel is an unlikely jumping off point for a post-apocalyptic young adult trilogy. It’s best described as The Breakfast Club set after the apocalypse. A group of teens are trapped together in a chain superstore and face the prospect of life, death and love and hate while the world as they know it ends right outside. That book was published in June, and the followup, Monument 14: Sky On Fire, will be published next June by the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group imprint Feiwell & Friends. Read More »
