Born to Rock

Paramount Pictures and MTV Films have optioned the Gordon Korman novel Born to Rock and set brothers Gavin and Greg O'Connor (writers of Disney's Miracle) to develop it under their Solaris banner as a potential directing vehicle for Gavin.

Variety says the comedy revolves around a teenager whose Harvard dreams get dashed when his scholarship is revoked after an ethics scandal.

He discovers that his mysterious biological father is the lead singer of a legendary '80s punk band that's mounting a comeback. The youth becomes a roadie in hopes of prying tuition money from his father after bonding with him.

Hyperion will release the novel next year.
