39 Clues–The Movie

The Medusa Plot (39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, #1) A King's Ransom (The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, #2) The Dead of Night (The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, #3)

According to an exclusive from The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Studios are in talks to pick up movie options for the 39 Clues series.  The series is made up of 10 books and have been amazingly popular with young readers thanks to their quick moving plots and the multi-media components.

This may all sound familiar, since DreamWorks had optioned the film rights back in 2008.  A screenplay was written and a director selected, but it is unclear whether the script will be used on the new project and who will direct.
