Entertainment Weekly has learned that Nana Entertainment is producing a film for B-Roll, an adaption of the bestselling novel by Robert Galbraith.
The film, written by Kevin Egan and starring Nana and the original Bad Boy, will be directed by James Wan.
It is being produced by Wan, who also helmed “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.”
The Bad Boy film is described as “a gritty, dark and stylish film about two young men who discover the power of their shared friendship when their love is turned into a deadly game of chess.”
It will be produced by CAA and is set to open in theaters in the fall.
The title of the film is not yet known, but it is likely to be a dark comedy or revenge thriller.
In a separate news release, the company said that the film will “provide a dark, realistic and heartwarming glimpse into the life of one of the most talented and popular young stars in Hollywood.”
A sequel to the novel, titled “B-roll,” is also expected to come out in the coming months.
