Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies are set to co-produce The Game of Sunken Places, based on a pitch by screenwriter Matt Nix and inspired by the Scholastic Press book by M.T. Anderson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nickelodeon is writing the action-adventure that follows two boys who discover that the housing development where they live is in fact a gigantic game, and that the mysterious developer is a representative of a supernatural race that is testing humanity's worth.

Chris O'Donnell and Sarah Polley are attached to star.
