Columbia Pictures has picked up the pitch Swift from Barry Sonnenfeld and Ben David Grabinski that reimagines the Tom Swift adventure novels.
According to Variety, the project is being developed as a Sonnenfeld directing vehicle.
The Tom Swift character first appeared in a series of books that launched in 1910. The original books were outlined by Edward Stratemeyer, written by ghostwriters and credited to pseudonym Victor Appleton.
Sonnenfeld and Grabinski's version would feature Swift as one-half of a father-son team who are among the greatest inventors of all time.
No production date has been set.
