Sony Takes Up The Swap

Tim and Tom Mullen will adapt Antony Moore’s novel “The Swap” for Sony Pictures reports the trades.

The story centers on an out-of-shape comic book dealer who, haunted by the loss of a priceless comic book, tries to reverse his fortunes at his high school reunion and becomes involved in murder, romance and the unearthing of long-buried secrets.

The book was published last year by Harvill Secker. John Calley, Diana Napper and Lisa Medwid are producing.

The Mullen brothers are set to direct their first feature, the teen comedy “Deers and Beers,” with Montecito Pictures. They also penned the Sandra Bullock-led remake of the 80’s comedy classic “Just One of the Guys.”
