Elizabeth Chandler ("A Little Princess") has been hired to pen the script for a film adaptation of Ingrid Law's 2008 young-adult fantasy book "Savvy" at Walden Media says Risky Biz Blog.
The story follows 12-year-old Mibs Beaumont who comes from a family that receive their own special power on their thirteenth birthday. When an accident puts her father in a coma two days before said birthday, Mibs takes off to help him and ends up on a wild adventure with her friends and siblings.
Denise Di Novi and Alison Greenspan will produce. Karen Janszen ("Dolphin Tale") previously worked on the script.
