Monument 14 Book Series Gets Adapted

Reel FX and Strange Weather have acquired screen rights to Emmy Laybourne’s young adult novel “Monument 14.” The first novel in a proposed trilogy, the story is described as a post-apocalyptic “The Breakfast Club.”

The story deals with a group of teens trapped together in a chain superstore and face the prospect of life, death and love and hate while the world as they know it ends right outside.

Brad Peyton (“Journey 2: The Mysterious Island”) will adapt the script with the intent of directing.
