Universal Pictures has acquired screen rights to the Larry Doyle novel Go Mutants!. Doyle will write the screenplay for the 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 — the robot from “The Day the Earth Stood Still” — and the creature from the black lagoon. The studio and Imagine bought the book on the basis of an outline, and Doyle will finish the novel this summer and work on the script at the same time. The book will be published by HarperCollins next summer.
