Paramount falls for ‘Miki’

Studio, Plan B pick up manga book series

Paramount Pictures and Brad Pitt’s Plan B have acquired “Miki Falls,” a four-volume manga series created by Mark Crilley.

TV scribe Sera Gamble has been tapped to adapt.

Story chronicles the final year of high school for Miki Yoshida, the series’ protag who tries to befriend handsome new student Hiro Sakurai but is met with resistance. Stubborn Miki, however, refuses to take no for an answer, which leads to a surprising revelation about the secretive young man.

Crilley is best known for his “Akiko” young adult novels and comicbooks. His first “Miki Falls” tome, each of which span a season of the calendar, was published in May 2007 by HarperTeen.

Gamble is a producer of the CW Network series “Supernatural” and was a staff writer on “Eyes,” which aired on ABC. She was also a finalist on “Project Greenlight” for her screenplay “Cheeks.”
