Adding to its roster of bigscreen rights to young adult novels, Twentieth Century Fox has acquired rights to “Shatter Me” by Tahereh Mafi.

Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark will produce the project through Fox-based Chernin Entertainment.

Emma Watts, Peter Kang and Daria Cercek will oversee the project for the studio.

Set in a dystopian world, “Shatter Me” is the story of a 17-year-old girl imprisoned for possessing a fatal touch. As she watches everything crumble around her, she must choose between relinquishing her power or use it to save the world.

Deal adds to Fox’s growing stake in the young adult genre. Last month, the studio inked an overall deal with teen book development company Paper Lantern Lit and a first-look agreement with founder Lauren Oliver, including rights to her second novel “Delirium.”

HarperCollins will release “Shatter Me” later this fall.
