Producer takes feature rights to 'Unremembered' books

Producer Doug Davison has picked up feature rights to Jessica Brody’s upcoming, three-book “Unremembered” series for his newly minted Quadrant Pictures banner.

Whitney Anderson has been tapped to pen the adaptation. Anderson is already teamed with Davison: They’re writing Warner Bros.’ reboot of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” with Davison producing along with Roy Lee, Charles Roven and Steve Alexander.

“Unremembered,” set against the backdrop of time travel and gene manipulation, begins when a 16-year-old awakens with no memories, surrounded by wreckage from a plane crash. The only clue to her identity is a mysterious young man who claims she was part of a scientific experiment — 100 years in the future.

Davison’s a producer on the upcoming Taylor Lautner thriller “Abduction” and was a co-producer on “How to Train Your Dragon.” He was an exec producer on “The Departed” and racked up credits on remakes including “The Lake House,” “Dark Water,” “Quarantine” and “Shutter” in partnership with Lee through their Vertigo Entertainment banner.

Anderson is repped through CAA and Jessica Jordan. Brody’s repped by Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents.
