KK&P lands pic rights to ‘Eden’

Dystopian thriller to be based on Keary Taylor novel

Independent financier and production company Kerry, Kimmel and Pollack has acquired rights to Keary Taylor’s novel “Eden,” a dystopian thriller described as a cross between “The Hunger Games” and “The Terminator.”

Story follows Eve, a teenage girl living in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is on the brink of extinction and robots that were created to serve humans have turned against them. As Eve struggles to fight the Fallen and help her friends find safety, she must choose between a boy she has always trusted and one who holds the secrets to her past.

“Eden” will be produced by Mark Morgan (“The Twilight Saga”), Kami Garcia (the “Beautiful Creatures” series), Brett Hudson (“Fast Flash to Bang Time”) and Michael Pollack (“Black Forest”).

KK&P, which recently acquired feature film and TV rights to pop culture guru Caprice Crane’s novel “How to Be a Hater,” is in pre-production on the W. Peter Illif-scripted psychological thriller “Fast Flash to Bang Time.”
