Singer Elton John's production company has won the film rights to author Michael Buckley's bestselling book series "Nerds" says Deadline.
The series follows a group of unpopular and socially inept geeks who run a spy network from inside their elementary school. There they battle the Hyena, a former junior beauty pageant contestant-turned-assassin and various other villains.
Buckley will write the adapted script for the film that will be a 3D animated feature.
Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish will produce.
