Mouse goes to spy school

Disney adapts teen novel

Walt Disney Pictures has snapped up film rights to Ally Carter’s debut young adult novel “I’d Tell You I Love You but Then I’d Have to Kill You.”

Book is set in an isolated girls school outside Washington, D.C., where all the students are daughters of spies. The girls are secretly being trained to become agents themselves.

Lead girl is the daughter of the school’s headmistress. Trouble ensues when the daughter has a romance with a local boy.

Book is being published by Disney company Hyperion Kids, which bought the manuscript in a preemptive publishing deal. Mouse House book scout Nan Shipley sent it to the studio. Karen Glass is Disney Pictures’ exec on the project.
