Fox 2000 and Seed Productions have scored the film rights to Catherine Fisher’s young-adult novel series “Incarceron” reports Variety.
The dystopian fantasy follows a young boy incarcerated in a futuristic and living prison ruled by rivalry and savagery, and the daughter of the prison’s warden who lives outside in a future world made to resemble the 17th century and is being forced into an arranged marriage. Both find a device, a crystal key, which allows them to communicate with each other.
The project will go out to writers and directors shorly and John Palermo will produce. The second novel in the series, “Sapphique”, hits bookstores early next year.
