Plan B has acquired the film rights to and plans to adapt National Book Award-winning author M.T. Anderson‘s new novel “Landscape with Invisible Hand” into a feature.
The series of short, humorous vignettes presciently depict a near-future in which an alien species known as the ‘Vuvv’ has taken over Earth and their labor-saving technology causes the job market and global economy to collapse.
A teen and his girlfriend cook up a way to make much-needed money by broadcasting their dating life to the fascinated aliens. Things go badly when over time the two teens come to hate each other and can’t break up without bankrupting their families.
Plan B will produce the project as part of their overall deal production deal with Annapurna.
