Universal Pictures has aquired the screen rights for Larry Doyle (I Love You, Beth Cooper)’s upcoming novel, Go Mutants!, and set the scribe to adapt. He will work on the project alongside finishing the book this summer. Go Mutants! is a teen comedy/adventure set in a high school where all of the tropes from classic 1950s alien invasion movies came true. Years later, the children of those mutant creatures have assimilated among the other kids. Doyle said the book and movie invites cameos from ’50s fright fixtures like Gort from “The Day the Earth Stood Still” — and the Creature from the black lagoon. Universal bought the book on the basis of an outline. It will be published by HarperCollins next summer.
