Angryfilms to Make Cycler


Don Murphy and Susan Montford’s Angryfilms has optioned Lauren McLaughlin’s young-adult book series “Cycler,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The novels tell the story of Jill, a suburban teenager who for four days each month turns into Jack, complete with male anatomy and 17-year-old-boy fantasies. Jill has maintained her life of ordinary teenage worries, such as going to the prom and dealing with crush, but that changes when Jack, tired of being locked in his room, begins to escape, causing damage to her social life.

Random House for Young Readers published the book last year and followed it with a sequel, “Re-Cycler”; more are on the way.
