MTV Films has picked up the feature rights to Scott Christian Sava’s forthcoming graphic novel “Hyperactive” for Benderspink to produce, reports Variety.
The thriller revolves around Joey Caram, a teen whose hyperactive metabolism enables him to move with incredible speed and agility and catches the attention of a pharmaceutical company that wants to extract his DNA.
“Hyperactive” marks the second project to be set up at a studio for Sava, after Disney optioned Pet Robots, also for Benderspink to produce. Both books were created and published by Sava through his Blue Dream Studios.
Sava also has feature plans for his graphic novels “Dino Wars” and “Animal Crackers.”
No writer has yet been tapped to adapt “Hyperactive.”
