James Frey, the controversial author of the fabricated memoir A Million Little Pieces, has inked a $2 million deal with 20th Century Fox for the film rights for his new book Endgame, according to a report on Deadline.com.
According to the report, HarperCollins is publishing the book. The book is reported to be a Hunger Games-style story about battles among teens. Here is more from Deadline.com about the book:
In a world similar to Earth, there are 12 bloodlines, or races. Each bloodline has a champion between the ages of 13 and 17 who is trained as a warrior and is always ready to do battle. When they turn 18, the teen warrior behind them gets promoted. This has been the case for hundreds of years, but no one remembers why — they’re always ready for some sort of battle to take place, but it never does. But the tradition continues. And then one day they’re called to fight, and all the bloodlines but the winners will be exterminated. They’re fighting to be the last race.
