Paramount books ‘Agnes Quill’

Studio acquires rights to graphic novel

Paramount has acquired screen rights to “Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery,” a graphic novel by Dave Roman.

Thor Freudenthal (“Hotel for Dogs”) is attached to direct, and Evan Spiliotopoulos is writing the script.

Pic marks the first acquisition for Adam Goodman since transitioning from DreamWorks, where he shepherded “Hotel for Dogs.”

Graphic novel’s title character turns 16 and inherits from her grandfather an estate and an ability to see and communicate with the dead.

Spiliotopoulos comes out of animation and most recently adapted graphic novel “The Last Call” for Universal.

Steven Gilder and Jason Clark will produce. Clark produced “Hotel for Dogs,” which Paramount will release in January.

Freudenthal is repped by Gersh and Gotham, and UTA reps Spiliotopoulos.
