Wanted Helmer Adapting “Lunar Boy”

Timur Bekmambetov’s Bazelevs company has scored the feature film rights to Stephen Tunney’s young adult sci-fi novel “One Hundred Percent Lunar Boy” reports The Chicago Tribune.

Edward Ricourt (“Now You See Me”) has been hired to adapt the take set two millennia into the future. There 16-year-old Hieronymus Rexaphin, living on a now colonised Moon, meets a girl from Earth who is inexplicably drawn to him because of his ability to see the future path of time and matter.

“Wanted” director Bekmambetov will produce this part coming-of-age story, part epic visual feast along with Michele Wolkoff.
