Sony Pictures has reportedly pre-emptively acquired film rights to S.J. Kincaid’s just published young adult sci-fi novel “The Diabolic”.
In the story the galaxy’s most deadly weapon – a humanoid teen – masquerades as a senator’s daughter and a hostage of the galactic court.
The deadly humanoid, named Diabolic, assumes her identity and has an awakening as she deals with all the backstabbing and politics inherent in a crumbling empire.
Matt Tolmach will produce.
