Prodigy Adaptation

According to THR, Intrepid Pictures has purchased Dave Kalstein's novel Prodigy and hired him to adapt it into a screenplay.

The story, set in the near future, centers on an elite prep school that promises to turn teenagers into geniuses through a drug and diet regimen for a hefty half-million-dollar tuition. When several alumni turn up dead, the school's impoverished valedictorian, on scholarship, is assigned to investigate the murders, leading him to a fellow student who might be the victim of a cover-up.

Intrepid will present the sci-fi thriller to Rogue Pictures as part of its five-year, first-look deal with the Focus Features genre arm.

"We hopefully anticipate making the film with Rogue," said Intrepid co-founder Trevor Macy, who is producing the $20 million project with fellow co-founder Marc Evans. "It's a priority for our 2007 slate."

With the recent boost in fantasty adaptations it seems like we have been lacking in the sci-fi genre. Prodigy could make a perfect fit.

Stay tuned for updates.
