The UK-based Multistory Films has acquired the rights to the novel “School’s Out” by Scott Andrews.

The book was initially published in 2007 by Abaddon. No writer or director have been attached the property, but to get a taste of the deviancy the potential film my hold, get a load of this synopsis from Amazon:

It’s never easy being fifteen, but when your teachers are killing each other, the prefect who loves to bully you is experimenting with crucifixion, and the rival gang from across town have decided that ritualistic cannibalism is the way to go, spots and BO don’t seem like such big problems after all.

These are the final days of St Marks School For Boys, and the punishment for disobedience is death!

It sounds like the a story that’s out to break every taboo. We’ll keep you posted of further developments.
