    The team that brought us The Fault In Our Stars(500) Days of Summer, and The Disaster Artist is coming together to adapt Kevin Wilson’s just-released novel. It is Elizabeth Gabler’s first acquisition at 3000 Pictures, a new production label focused on “book-friendly” films.

    Nothing to See Here tells the story of Lillian and Madison, two friends at an elite boarding school who were inseparable—until Lillian takes the fall for a scandal and is forced to leave the school. Fast-forward ten years, and Madison finally reaches out to Lillian, asking her to be the caretaker of her twin step-kids. (It’s always creepy twins, isn’t it?!)

    There’s just one small thing: the kids spontaneously combust when they get mad. (I’m imagining it to be kind of like Jack-Jack in The Incredibles but double the trouble.)

    Sounds like there’s something to see here (not sorry).
