‘Hater’ rights to Kerry, Kimmel

Producer plans bigscreen take on Caprice Crane novel

Independent financier and production company Kerry, Kimmel and Pollack has acquired rights to pop culture guru Caprice Crane’s novel “How to Be a Hater,” which Crane will adapt herself.

Described as “Mean Girls” meets “Revenge of the Nerds,” story follows a misfit teen who learns that popularity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be after she reinvents herself, using instructions drawn from the diary of her much cooler, older sister.

Mark Morgan (“The Twilight Saga”), Kami Garcia (the “Beautiful Creatures” series), Brett Hudson (“Black Forest”) and Michael Pollack (“Fast Flash to Bang Time”) will produce.

The daughter of actress Tina Louise (“Gilligan’s Island”) and former talkshow host Les Crane, Caprice Crane is the bestselling author of four novels, and she also writes for film and television. She has written for MTV, and her TV credits include the debut seasons of CW’s “90210” and “Melrose Place” reboots.

KK&P recently acquired film and TV rights to novelist Gregg Olsen’s “Empty Coffin” series, as well as Marcus Sedgwick’s novel “White Crow.” Company is currently producing Lara Flynn Boyle starrer “Black Forest.”

Paradigm’s Ida Ziniti negotiated the deal for Crane.
