Picking up a rather different project, MTV Films is preparing to set up a teen thriller feature titled "Handsome Devil" under its banner following its triumph in winning the bidding war for the rights to the flick.
Plot details are currently being kept under wraps, but it is said that the picture is set at a Manhattan prep school with Kevin Misher to produce. The movie itself will be developed based on the script penned by Jacob Forman, who previously wrote for "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" which recently was picked up by The Weinstein Company.
The motion picture production arm of cable channel MTV, MTV Films was originally formed in 1995 and has become full label of the Paramount Motion Pictures Group together with Nickelodeon Movies since August 21, 2006. Its recent productions included "Coach Carter", "Aeon Flux", "Get Rich or Die Tryin'", and "Jackass: Number Two."
