Summit Plans Tempest


Summit Entertainment has optioned the right to Tempest, to be based off the upcoming sci-fi novel by Julie Cross, reports Variety.

Cross, a Illinois-based gymnastics program director turned young adult novelist, has been documenting the progress of her publication on her blog, where she describes the plot of Tempest as, “[T]he first in a trilogy about a 19-year-old time traveler who witnesses his girlfriend’s murder and inadvertently jumps back two years; stuck there, he’s recruited by a shadowy government agency run by the man he thought was his father and vows to save his girlfriend no matter the cost.”
