In a story from Variety, The Gotham Group is going to be working with Italian publisher Atlantyca Entertainment to make a film version of Edizioni Piemme's book series Century.

Random House recently brought out the series in the U.S. "Century" centers around the challenges of four teens and their families as they look for four ancient objects of power that are connected to fire, earth, air and water.

The book series is penned by author Pierdomenico Baccalario. It has 11 other publishers internationally. Gotham Group's Ellen Goldsmith-Vein said she thinks the book series "has the makings for a fantastic four-quadrant film franchise."
