Paramount To Adopt “The New Kid”

Following on from it’s acclaimed first attempt with “Rango”, Paramount Pictures is developing its second non-DreamWorks animated feature.

Variety reports that the studio is developing “New Kid,” a film adaptation of the Penny Arcade online comic.

The story centers around the feeling of being a new kid in school, but with a twist – the protagonist is the lone earthling in a school of aliens.

Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce while Gary Whitta is penning the script.
