Intrepid Pictures has picked up the psychological thriller, The Prince from Dave Kalstein; either Universal or Rogue Pictures will distribute.

The film centers on a prep school student framed as a terrorist who seeks revenge on his former classmates, says The Hollywood Reporter. Kalstein based the script on his experiences getting kicked out of prep schools. After the title character is falsely charged with a planned Columbine High School-style attack, he is sent to prison and re-emerges among his old cohorts with a new identity. He plays on their fears and ambitions, ultimately killing them or exposing their secrets in his quest for justice.

Production on The Prince is scheduled to get under way in mid-2007.
