New Regency has set screenwriter Max Borenstein to adapt Dan Sehlberg's novel Mona for the screen, Deadline reports. The book, which will be published this July, is officially described as follows:

Eric Söderquist, professor of computer science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, has invented Mind Surf: a thought-controlled system that allows people with disabilities to browse the web.

Lebanese Samir Mustaf is a former MIT professor whose daughter Mona was killed by an Israeli cluster bomb five years earlier. He has just completed the most sophisticated computer virus the world has ever seen, for the purpose of a cyber attack against Israel's financial system.

Eric's wife Hanna falls into a coma – struck by an aggressive and previously unknown virus – after having tested her husband's invention. The doctors are at a loss. Although everyone around him thinks he's gone mad, Eric is convinced that his wife has been infected by a powerful computer virus known as Mona, and that the only way he can save her is by tracking down its creator. In a dramatic and increasingly dangerous pursuit Eric gets closer to his academic equal Samir, with both Mossad and Hezbollah following his every move. In Stockholm the mysterious virus has just claimed its first victim and Hanna's condition is deteriorating quickly.


Borenstein is best known for his work on the upcoming Godzilla.
