Giant Horny Murderous Grasshoppers Are Coming To The Big Screen

From MTV

Giant sex-crazed mutant grasshoppers are on their way to Hollywood, as Sony Pictures has acquired rights to Andrew Smith's "Grasshopper Jungle."

A report from Deadline confirms that the recently-released YA novel is set to be adapted for film. The book, which has earned accolades for its inventive apocalypse scenario and unique portrait of teenage angst, centers on the romantic entanglements and bizarre adventures of protagonist Austin Szerba.

Austin is a typically sex-obsessed 16 year-old — just about everything, by his own description, makes him horny — whose confused affections for both his girlfriend Shann and his best friend Robby come to a head just as, simultaneously, a plague is unleashed on his Iowa hometown that turns most of the unlucky residents into enormous mutant grasshoppers whose only goals are to mate with each other and eat everyone else.

The project was brought in by writer Scott Rosenberg, who is probably best known as the writer behind the highly-entertaining hijacking thriller "Con Air," and whose ability to interweave action with humanity and humor should serve the script well.

It remains to be seen who will act in and direct this surreal romp through Weirdsville, but as always, we've got some early ideas.
