Spiderwick Team Adapting “Dark Life”

The Gotham Group (“The Spiderwick Chronicles”) have optioned Kat Falls’ underwater adventure novel “Dark Life” says Variety.

The story is set in a near-future world in which rising ocean levels and natural catastrophes have led some people to homestead on the ocean floor. The action centers on an underwater teenage boy and a surface girl who join forces to uncover a government conspiracy.

Gregory Little, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Lee Stollman will produce with a director currently being sought before it goes out to the studios.
