Strange Weather closes in on ‘Wall’

'Shrek' series teammates snag sci-fi tome

Aron Warner, producer of the “Shrek” movies, has optioned Paul Melko’s “The Walls of the Universe” for Strange Weather, his production company with fellow DreamWorker Andrew Adamson, co-helmer of “Shrek” and “Shrek 2.”

The sci-fi novel tracks the adventures of an Ohio high-schooler named John Rayburn as his parallel universe doppelganger, John Prime, hoodwinks him into switching places and strands him in John Prime’s universe.

“We think it has a ton of potential to explore the idea of parallel universes in a personal way, like ‘Back to the Future’ did with time travel,” said Warner.
