Noted to often generate comedic features, MTV Films now is taking different turn in its next move.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the studio is set to develop teen thriller "The Lost Girls", which will be a big screen adaptation of Alex McAulay's novel "Bad Girls", and has tapped Holly Brix to work on the screenplay. On duty to produce is Michelle Manning, who will carry out the task via her MM Productions shingle.
Published in June 2005 by MTV/Pocket Books, the original tells about a group of privileged female teen troublemakers attending a reformatory school in the Bahamas. Suspense begins to spin when things become dangerous after they are sent on a nature hike, making them must fight for their lives.
Originally formed in 1995, MTV Films is the motion picture production arm of cable channel MTV and has produced movies based on MTV programs such as "Aeon Flux" and "Jackass: The Movie", as well as other adaptations and original projects like "Orange County", "Coach Carter", and "The Longest Yard." Together with Nickelodeon Movies, it has become full label of the Paramount Motion Pictures Group since August 21, 2006.
