According to Variety, Paramount is sending Adam Sztykiel to Nerd Camp, its feature project about summer programs for gifted children that's being developed by Nickelodeon Films and Tollin/Robbins Prods.
Sztykiel will pen the script.
Paramount set up Nerd Camp last year, optioning film rights to Burkhard Bilger's New Yorker article about summer programs for gifted kids. Nick senior VP Julia Pistor and TRP co-toppers Mike Tollin and Brian Robbins are producing.
The project's envisioned as the tale of a group of children who spend the summer taking college-level courses at a "nerd camp" and redefine what it means to be cool.
