Children Of Paranoia And Me!

So my next project has FINALLY been announced -- I'm adapting Trevor Shane's excellent "Children of Paranoia" for CBS Films, working with producer Akiva Goldsman.  C of P is a thriller with awesome twists and turns, and a very emotional story at the chewy center.  As happens in the world of show-biz it's taken 2 1/2 years of pursuing, pitching, deal-making and now, finally, writing to make this happen -- but it's worth it.   

Since it ain't official until it appears in Nikke Finke, here's the piece:

I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Children of Paranoia is in your hands. For the record, I'm a big believer in the following statement made by AV Film Critic Scott Tobias: "A book is a book and a movie is a movie, and whenever the latter merely sets about illustrating the former, it’s a failure of adaptation, to say nothing of imagination" (http://www.avclub.com/articles/the-hunger-games,71293/). I'm truly excited to see where you and Akiva take the story.
