Sony Pictures has acquired the rights to Allen Zadoff's young adult novel Boy Nobody, which will serve as a starring vehicle for Jaden Smith.
The story centers on a teenage assassin (Jaden Smith) who was programmed not to feel any emotions. His life becomes more complicated when he finally starts to feel once again. The character is described as a teenage Jason Bourne. Sony beat out 20th Century Fox for the book rights, and although negotiations are currently under way, a deal has not been solidified yet.
No production schedule was given. The novel, which is the first in a planned trilogy, will be published next spring by Little, Brown.
