Producer David Permut has acquired C.D. Payne’s novel “Youth in Revolt.”

Published by Alvia Press, book is the journal of a precocious high school student who goes on a quest to lose his virginity.

The novel was brought to Permut by Miranda Freiberg, who’ll co-produce with Permut Presents production veep Steve Longi. Permut will look to sign a writer in hopes of making a studio deal.

Payne has penned four humor novels; one of them, “Party Animals,” is being produced by the Farrelly brothers, with Seth MacFarlane (“The Family Guy”) writing and directing.

Permut just wrapped the Jeff Nathanson-directed “Providence” for Touchstone, and most recently set up a film about the life of Sammy Davis Jr. as a vehicle for Eddie Griffin.
