Heather Swain’s ‘Hungry’ to be Developed to Film
Ineffable Pictures is developing young-adult novel “Hungry” as a movie, tapping writer Derek Simon to adapt Heather Swain’s dystopian story. Ineffable’s Raphael Kryszek and Jesse Israel will produce with Lane Shefter Bishop of Vast Entertainment, who brought the project to the company. “Hungry,” set for publication in June by Holts Children/MacMillan/Feiwell & Friends, takes place in a future in which there is no longer any food and the population is fed via nutrient patches manufactured by a ruling corporation. The story follows a teen girl as she suddenly starts feeling hunger pains. More info here.
