Adrian Tchaikovsky’s SF novel, Children of Time, has been optioned by Peter Kang – President of Production at Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate pictures. The option was agreed by Simon Kavanagh at the Mic Cheetham Agency in London, working with the United Talent Agency in LA.
Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate produced the Hunger Games and the Twilight saga.
Children of Time is set in the far future, when the last remnants of humanity are forced to flee our dying planet – and it tells of two civilizations on a collision course. Following ancient star maps, reminders of a golden age, we rediscover a lost treasure: a planet terraformed and prepared for human life. But it is not unoccupied. In the long years since the world was abandoned, new masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind’s worst nightmare. But who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
Bella Pagan, Editorial Director at Pan Macmillan, told SFcrowsnest, ‘I couldn’t be happier about this. Adrian’s fabulous book has been optioned by a fabulous production company with an incredible reputation.’
