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.”
