Columbia Pictures has bought the rights for the new film, The Art of Cool from a spec script by Alex Sabeti.

The film is a high school comedy that centers on a geeky student who discovers the classic book The Art of War by Sun Tzu, and literally uses it as a survival guide for navigating the social politics of high school, says Variety.

Project is Sabeti's first screenplay, which he wrote while temping at a finance company; The Art of Cool has no production date for a start.
