Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions is set to produce the film adaptation of Frank Portman's debut novel, King Dork for Paramount Vantage.

The Hollywood Reporter says the film centers on 14-year-old Tom Henderson, a typical high school slacker whose life changes when he finds his late father's copy of the Salinger classic The Catcher in the Rye.

No word on a production schedule for King Dork.
