Fleck & Boden Plan A Calamity

Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden (“Half Nelson”) have signed on to adapt teen novel “Special Topics in Calamity Physics” for Miramax and producer Scott Rudin.

Marisha Pessl’s nove centers on a teenage girl who, after spending years of high school moving each semester with her eccentric teacher father, thankfully settles down in a small North Carolina town for her senior year.

She soon becomes part of an upper-crust social set called the Bluebloods and gets caught up in the mysterious death of their favorite teacher.

Fleck and Boden will write the adaptation, with Fleck attached to direct once they finish work on the Dominican baseball student turned US Minor League player drama “Sugar.”
