Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies have bought the rights to the animated children's film, Mayfly.

Leo Benvenuti and Steve Rudnick have written the story of a mayfly who accidentally oversleeps and, with the help of a tortoise friend, discovers the value of living for the moment, says Variety. The insects have a very short lifespan, with some living only for one day; the concept puts the opposing lifespans of the two creatures into play since tortoises often live close to 100 years.

There's no cast info or production schedule set as of yet for Mayfly.
