Heather Swain’s ‘Hungry’ to be Developed to Film (EXCLUSIVE)

Ineffable Pictures is developing young-adult novel “Hungry” as a movie, tapping writer Derek Simon to adapt Heather Swain’s dystopian story.

Ineffable’s Raphael Kryszek and Jesse Israel will produce with Lane Shefter Bishop of Vast Entertainment, who brought the project to the company.

“Hungry,” set for publication in June by Holts Children/MacMillan/Feiwell & Friends, takes place in a future in which there is no longer any food and the population is fed via nutrient patches manufactured by a ruling corporation. The story follows a teen girl as she suddenly starts feeling hunger pains.

Simon is currently a writer’s assistant on FX’s “The Americans” and his pilot “Substitution” is currently in development at Storyline Entertainment.

Ineffable is adapting Andrea Lochen’s “The Repeat Year” and is partnered with Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films on Matthew Power’s “Excuse Us While We Kiss the Sky.”  Bishop is producing adaptations of “Reboot” with Peter Chernin, “The Duff” with McG and “Confessions of a Sociopath”  with Scott Stuber.

Swain has written “Cold Feet,” “Luscious Lemon” and “Me, My Elf and I.” She’s repped by Stephanie Kip Rostan at Levine Greenberg.

Simon is represented by Gersh and manager John Tantillo. Bishop is repped by Gersh.
