Sascha Penn will write an adapted screenplay based upon Stuart Gibbs first novel "The Last Equation" according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story revolves around Pandora, Albert Einstein's mysterious final equation which has the potential to solve the world's energy problems.
Unfortunately the equation so drastically simplified the process of harnessing atomic energy, Einstein either hid or destroyed the equation before his died.
The tale takes place in the present day-the U.S. government is forced to ask for the help of a fugitive criminal and mathematical genius to find the equation before it falls into the wrong hands.
The premise sounds really cool for a film that's rooted in reality...
