Rifkin Adapting Graphic Novel Zoom’s Academy

Revolution Studios has hired “Small Soldiers” and “Mouse Hunt” writer Adam Rifkin to pen Zoom’s Academy for the Super Gifted, based on the popular graphic novel by animator Jason Lethcoe.

The “Harry Potter”-like project revolves around an unpopular high school girl who is whisked away by her mysterious father to a school for burgeoning superheroes, where she discovers that she also has hidden talents.

Rifkin most recently penned adaptations of the book “Where’s Waldo” for Nickelodeon Films and Paramount, as well as the cartoon “Underdog” for Spyglass and Disney. He also directed the New Line comedy “Detroit Rock City”.
