A KOTLC (Keeper of the Lost Cities) live-action film adaptation was confirmed on January 11th with both an article from Deadline[4] and through posts on Shannon Messenger's Instagram[5] and Twitter[6] accounts, along with additional sites posting the general message. The script will be written by Kate Gritmon and Ben Affleck, with the film directed by the latter. Madison Ainley will be the executive producer. The project will be produced by Ben Affleck's production company, Pearl Street Films. As of yet, fans cannot be sure when the movie will be released to the public.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Twelve-year-old Sophie Foster has a secret. She is a Telepath, and has a unique ability to hear the thoughts if everyone around her- something that she's never known how to explain, and has made her an outcast, even in her own family.

But everything changes the day she meets Fitz, a mysterious boy who appears out of nowhere during her field trip, and also reads minds. She discovers that there's somewhere she does belong, and staying where she is will put her in grave danger. In the blink of an eye, Sophie is forced to leave behind everything and start a new life in a place that is vastly different from her own.

Sophie has new rules and skills to learn, and not everyone is thrilled with her "homecoming." There are secrets buried deep inside Sophie's memory, secrets that other people desperately want.

Would even kill for....
