Those long-gestating plans to develop Australian author Matthew Reilly's young adult book series "Hovercar" into a film got a boost reports Heat Vision.
The story follows Jason Chaser, a young student who races in the dangerous and cutthroat world of hover car racing with his vehicle the Argonaut and his nerdy younger best friend and technician Bug. The books also feature a lot of school and classroom stuff set around the training school on the island of Tasmania which has been privatized, leading to four 'Grand Slam' races held in London, Sydney, New York City and across Italy.
At last report Blaise Hemingway was adapting the script with commercials director Fredrik Bond the top choice to direct.
"X2" and "Superman Returns" co-scribe Dan Harris will work on the script moving the project along which has been around since 2004.
