Fox 2000 to Adapt D.J. MacHale's Sylo

October 4, 2013


Fox 2000 has plans to adapt the first book of D.J. MacHale's Sylo trilogy for the big screen. Deadline reports that Thor Freudenthal will helm with a script being written by Marc Guggenheim. Both men recently worked together on the studio's Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

Sylo, the first book in a planned trilogy, was released earlier this year and is officially described as follows:

A thrilling trilogy begins on a peaceful island community that is rocked by a series of mysterious deaths, and quickly becomes a massive conflict that will determine the future of mankind. A group of young people uncover clues they hope will lead to the truth behind the madness for nothing is what it first appears to be. The quest to defend their home is made all the more difficult because they can’t be sure of who to trust… and who to fear. Everyone is a suspect. Nowhere is safe.

Lauren Shuler Donner and Jack Leslie will produce with MacHale himself serving as executive producer.
