Producer Aaron Magnani has picked up the option to G.P. Ching's young adult paranormal book series "Soulkeepers" with the aim of turning it into a possible franchise.
The six books in the series are based in a world where Heaven and Hell wage war for human souls. A teenage boy discovers he has the ability to protect souls from Fallen Angels, and he begins to learn how to harness this skill thanks to his beautiful and mysterious neighbor.
Meanwhile, Sony Pictures has picked up the family adventure pitch "Stranded" which will be shaped as a Kevin James vehicle. Tripper Clancy will write the "Swiss Family Robinson"-inspired script about a family shipwrecked on a deserted island.
