Charles Roven (The Dark Knight) and Alex Garter (Season of the Witch) of Atlas Entertainment have signed on to produce the adaptation of the comic book Langley High with Benderspink. Variety provides the synopsis:
Story centers on a student from Langley High, the school that’s located just 1.7 miles from CIA headquarters. After his father is captured in Russia and disavowed as an agent of the CIA, the student teams up with an undercover CIA agent teacher from his high school and ends up on a mission of revenge.
The premise set up by comic creators Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman has that nice hook—I’m already in love with the first act where they show us around the school. Once they leave the school, though… it could work on screen with the right cast. As always, I vote for casting a real teenager as the main high schooler.
