Universal Pictures and Silvertongue Films are reportedly planning a film adaptation of K. A. Applegate’s young adult sci-fi book series “Animorphs” says The Tracking Board.
The property was popular in the late 1990s and told in first person with the six main characters taking turns narrating the books through their own perspectives, each also has the ability to transform into any animal they touch.
Deborah Forte will produce the film which will focus heavily on the sci-fi aspect of the books, and the project is reportedly still looking for a screenwriter. The project comes hot on the heels of Sony’s upcoming film adaptation of R.L. Stan’s popular “Goosebumps” film.
