Biggies Doing Tom Swift Film

Digital Studio Worldwide Biggies has acquired all rights to Simon & Schuster’s long-running Tom Swift book series reports Variety.

Swift, a problem-solving teenage genius born into a family of inventors, has had a wide following for decades, spanning some 100-plus installments in numerous genres.

The company plans to introduce the franchise with a feature film and video game and follow with episodes for TV and the Web, much like what they did with “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.”
