Langley High

Atlas Entertainment, the company backed by The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven, just recently made moves into the independent film arena with the dramatic dark comedy Revenge for Jolly, which will feature Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig and many more. Now Roven and producer/Atlas executive Alex Gartner are working on yet another project as Deadline reports the producing duo have optioned Langley High, a forthcoming graphic novel from J.C. Spink and Christoper Cosmos from the management and production company Benderspink. Plot details on what seems a young adult spy thriller can be found below.

The story follows a student from Langley High, located 1.7 miles from CIA headquarters (I'm not sure why the precise distance is mentioned), whose father is captured in Russia and thus disavowed as a CIA agent. The student is then forced to team with an undercover CIA agent teacher from the high school and goes on a mission of revenge. Though Roven has big franchise under his belt that include Christopher Nolan's lauded Batman series and Zack Snyder's forthcoming take on Man of Steel, Gartner has had successes of his own with Get Smart and The Bank Job. Sounds like this will be geared towards teens, but if it can stay away from turning out like Abduction starring Taylor Lautner, then it has hope to turn into something decent.
