Summit Acquiring Klavan’s Homelanders


Summit Entertainment is in negotiations to acquire feature film rights to “Homelanders,” a young adult book series by Andrew Klavan, says The Hollywood Reporter. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura will produce the adaptation.

“The Homelanders” is about a young man Charlie West who just woke up in someone else’s nightmare. The first book is called “The Last Thing I Remember” and second is called “The Long Way Home.” The third book is due in November. The following is how the series is described:

Sometimes you have to go home to find out who you really are.

Charlie West went to bed one night an ordinary high school student. He woke up a hunted man. Terrorists are trying to kill him. The police want to arrest him for the stabbing death of his best friend. He doesn’t know whose side he’s one or who he can trust. With his pursuers closing in on every side, Charlie makes his way back to his hometown to find some answers. There, holed up in an abandoned mansion, he’s joined by his friends in a desperate attempt to discover the truth about a murder he can’t remember—and the love he can never forget.

Klavan’s credits include “True Crime” and “Don’t Say a Word,” which were both adapted into movies.
