Co. gets feature film rights to Dan Sehlberg's debut novel

In a pre-emptive deal, New Regency has acquired feature film rights to Dan Sehlberg’s debut novel “Mona.”

Book is described as an international thriller that involves a computer virus that infects a woman.

A hot title at the Frankfurt Book Fair, “Mona” is part of the Salomonsson Agency catalog, which is exclusively represented by RWSG Agency, whose Sylvie Rabineau negotiated the movie deal.

Over the past two weeks, foreign publishers have been snapping up rights to “Mona” and its sequel, “Sinon.”

New Regency, which is currently producing Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah,” recently wrapped Steve McQueen’s “Twelve Years a Slave” and Brad Furman’s gambling pic “Runner, Runner.” Company’s next release will be the Mark Wahlberg-Russell Crowe thriller “Broken City.”
