Universal Goes Back To 50’s For “Mutants”

Universal Pictures has landed screen rights to Larry Doyle’s upcoming teen comedy/adventure novel “Go Mutants!” says Variety.

Doyle will adapt the script which is set in a high school where all of the tropes from classic 1950s alien invasion movies (ie. Gort, The Creature from the Black Lagoon) came true.

Years later, the children of those mutant creatures have assimilated among the other kids. Brian Grazer will produce.
