Danny King’s ‘School’ optioned

Novel on track for feature development

British author Danny King’s latest novel “School for Scumbags” has been optioned for feature development by producer David Matalon. Plot follows a teenage boy who, after being expelled from a long list of schools, finds his niche at the Gafin School for “misdirected” teens — run by professional thieves.

Matalon, who recently left his position as Regency’s CEO, is also set to produce a book-to-film adaptation of Lionel Davidson’s “Kolymsky Heights.”
