Intrepid nabs ‘Creek,’ ‘Midnight’

Novels were penned by Patrick Carman

Intrepid Pictures is going supernatural, buying up feature rights to a pair of young adult novels by Patrick Carman: “Skeleton Creek” and “13 Days to Midnight.”

Intrepid’s Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans will serve as producers on both projects. Anil Kurian will oversee for Intrepid.

Intrepid has tapped Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson to adapt “Skeleton Creek,” Scholastic’s book-video hybrid series set in Skeleton Creek, Ore., where two teens encounter a potentially supernatural entity while exploring an abandoned gold mine, launching them into an investigation of their town’s long-buried secrets.

The Skeleton Creek website features videos that have tallied more than 8 million hits. “Skeleton Creek #4: The Raven” will be published in May.

Rebecca Sonnenshine’s to pen the screenplay for “13 Days to Midnight,” published by Little Brown Books. Story centers on a boy who’s granted the power of indestructibility from his dying foster father.

Sonnenshine’s credits include “Within,” “The Haunting of Molly Hartley” and “American Zombie.”

Intrepid recently wrapped production on “The Raven,” starring John Cusack and set for distribution by Relativity. It produced action feature “The Cold Light of Day,” directed by Mabrouk El Mechri and starring Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver with Summit set to release.

Carman also penned the five-part “The Land of Elyon” series, the three-part series “Atherton,” “The Black Circle,” and the fifth title in “The 39 Clues” series and the multimedia “Trackers” series.

Carman’s repped for film and TV by Susan Schulman Literary Agency in association with Fine Print Literary Management.

Lyle and Nickerson are repped by the Kapler Stahler Agency, the Gotham Group and attorney Ryan Nord.

Sonnonshine’s repped by ICM, Circle of Confusion and attorney Adam Kaller.
