Awesomeness Films has acquired the film rights to “Riverman” trilogy author Aaron Starmer’s young adult fantasy novel “Spontaneous”.
Set against the backdrop of a suburban New Jersey high school, a normal day goes pear-shaped when students begin spontaneously bursting into flames. The remaining kids must come together to figure out a way to survive.
Brian Duffield and Nicki Cortese will produce with the former set to pen the script. Brian Robbins and Matt Kaplan will also produce. “Spontaneous” was named a Book Expo America 2016 Young Adult Buzz Book.
