Lindsay Devlin to Adapt ‘Reboot’ Novel for Fox Studios

Reboot-HC-Cover-Medium2Writer Lindsay Devlin has been named as the head-writer for the upcoming film adaptation of the Amy Tintera YA novel  entitled Reboot.

 

 

The novel (due to be published next year) is a dystopian tale of teenagers turned into government sanctioned  super-soldiers after death.

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favourite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

 

Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark and Lane Shefter Bishop are attached to produce the feature film version.

Reboot is Tintera’s first published novel, and is not available until May 2013, but can be pre-ordered here.
