According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thomas Dean Donnelly and Josh Oppenheimer are buckling up to adapt Airborn, which is being produced by Steve Sommers and Bob Ducsay of the Sommers Co. for Universal Pictures.

Based on a children's book by Kenneth Oppel, Airborn tells the tale of a 15-year-old boy who works on a luxury airship that is part dirigible, part passenger cruise ship. When pirates attack the airship, the boy, along with a female partner, embark on an adventure that includes strange flying creatures, secret lairs, nasty villains and uncharted volcanic islands.
