Fox 2000 and Lauren Shuler Donner have set up a film adaptation of the D.J. MacHale novel trilogy "Sylo".
The series follows the inhabitants of a small island who find themselves cut off from the mainland by a mysterious government military force.
Several teens escape to the mainland, only to discover that the inhabitants of the United States have all but vanished, and that they were actually being kept safe.
They try to discover the source of the invasion and fight back.
Thor Freudenthal ("Percy Jackson And The Sea Of Monsters") is slated to direct from a script by Marc Guggenheim. Shuler Donner and Jack Leslie will produce.
