In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Summit Entertainment is in talks to pick up the feature film rights to Andrew Klavan's book series Homelanders. Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and his Di Bonaventura Pictures company are coming aboard to produce the adaptation.

Klavan is known for writing such thrillers as True Crime which became a movie with Clint Eastwood, but this marks his first series for the young-adult market.

The story follows a high school student who wakes up tied to a chair. After he escapes, "he embarks on an adventure to find out why terrorists and the authorities are after him."

The first book, "The Homelanders: The Last Thing I Remember," was published last year by Thomas Nelson's Books, and the second, "The Homelanders: The Long Way Home," came to stores in February. The next book in the series is due in November.
