The adventures of Encyclopedia Brown are heading to the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Donald J. Sobol's boy detective is going to be the subject of a feature film, to be produced by Roy Lee and Howard David Deutsch.

Leroy Brown (nicknamed "Encyclopedia" for his tremendous intellect) is the son of the police chief of smalltown Idaville who solves cases with his friends for "25 cents per day, plus expenses." The subject of dozens of books (each containing 10 short stories), Encyclopedia Brown has previously been adapted as both a comic strip and an HBO television series in the late 1980's.

The Encyclopedia Brown books were partially famous for the way that they encouraged audience participation. After Brown's investigation into each case, readers were given the opportunity to solve each mystery for themselves with answers revealed in the back of the book.
