Reliance, Kintop acquire ‘Paladin’ trilogy

Aim is to release film in 2014

Reliance Entertainment and Kintop Pictures have acquired film rights to Mark Frost’s “The Paladin Prophecy,” a young-adult trilogy to be published by Random House Children’s Books in September, for seven figures.

Reliance announced the deal Tuesday and said it plans to release the film in 2014.

The company also said it will develop the screenplay of the first book with Frost, who will both write and exec produce the film.

“We are thrilled to be in business with a master storyteller like Mark Frost,” said producer Deepak Nayar of Kintop/Reliance. “These books align perfectly with what the international motion picture audience is looking for.”

The series centers on Will West, who has muted his unusual abilities both in the classroom and on the playing fields to avoid attention. But his cover is blown when he scores off the charts on a nationwide exam, and the resulting danger from a host of mysterious forces send him on the run into a complex world of secret societies and supernatural conflicts.

Frost is the co-creator of the TV series “Twin Peaks” with David Lynch. He wrote and produced Disney film “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” based on his book.
