'The School for Good and Evil' Brought to Big Screen by 'Oz' Producer


Joe Roth will produce the movie with author Soman Chainani and 'Hook' scribe Malia Scotch-Marmo as the writers.

Producer Joe Roth will take charge of another fantasy feature. Previously producing "Alice in Wonderland", "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Oz: The Great and Powerful", Roth has snatched up the on-screen rights to first-time author Soman Chainani's "The School for Good and Evil" as reported by Deadline.

The young adult novel centers on Sophie and Agatha, two best friends with different fates. While Sophie will earn top marks at the School for Good and join the likes of Cinderella and Rapunzel, Agatha seems a natural fit, with her shapeless black frocks and wicked black cat, for the villains in the School for Evil.

The plot twist is, both Sophie and Agatha will find their fortunes reversed and are forced to confront the truth about their unexpected destinies. The first book of the trilogy was released in the U.S. last week, on May 14.

Roth will not be the only producer in the project as Palek Patel and Jane Startz are attached to be the co-producers. Chainani will get involved in the production as well, co-writing the screenplay along with writer Malia Scotch-Marmo, best known for her works in Steven Spielberg's "Hook" and Daisy von Scherler Mayer's "Madeline".
