While I usually rip on Hollywood for its recent dependency on adaptations, the number of books being acquired has slowed down a bit in January. No, I don't think Hollywood is getting more creative, and I'm sure they will begin acquiring entire libraries in no time. For now I'll let this one slide.

The latest book on the adaptation chopping block is Daniel Suarez's Daemon, which Paramount hopes to turn into a thriller.

Paramount to Adapt Daemon

Daemon centers on an iconic game designer who, before he died, set up a program to fight mankind, with the story then exploring the ensuing man-vs.-machine battle. A daemon is a computer program that runs without the direct control of a human.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald will produce the project. The duo have quite a few projects at DreamWorks and Paramount including Motorcade, The Trials of the Chicago 7 and the comedy Dinner for Schmucks.

Though Daniel Suarez originally self-published the novel, Daemon's growing popularity caught the attention of Penguin Group. A sequel titled Freedom is in the works.
