Fox 2000 is game for tome

Studio to adapt young adult novel 'Duplikate'

Fox 2000 has snapped up Cherry Cheva’s young-adult novel “Duplikate” for Alloy Entertainment to produce.

Rina Mimoun, creator of the short-lived CW skein “Privileged,” has been tapped to adapt.

Story centers on Kate Larson, who creates an avatar named Rina for the SimuLife computer game. One day Rina springs to life and demands equal time in the real world.

Alloy, the teen-centric powerhouse behind such book-to-screen properties as “Gossip Girl” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” previously teamed with Mimoun on “Privileged.”

Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Bob Levy are producing.

Other Alloy bigscreen projects in development include “Au Pairs” at Warner Bros.

Cheva, who until recently was the only female scribe on the “Family Guy” writing staff, also penned the young adult book “She’s So Money.”

“Duplikate” hit stores in September.
