Lorenzo di Bonaventura has optioned the screen rights to "Wanted" and "Kick Ass" author Mark Millar's latest comic "Mph". A writer is now being sought and will be hired before it is set up at a studio.
Duncan Fegredo co-created the comic which follows four 19-year olds who get their hands on a street drug that gives them the ability to move at light speed for seven days.
Meanwhile, Fickle Fish Films has optioned the film rights to Mindy McGinnis' 2013 debut young-adult novel "Not A Drop To Drink". Meghan Hibbett and "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer will produce the film.
The survival story is set in a dystopian world where fresh water is almost non-existent. Lunn is a young woman who must protect her precious freshwater pond against drought, snowless winters, coyotes, and people looking for a drink.
