Variety reported yesterday that the film rights for Conn and Hal Iggulden‘s smash hit THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS – already the inspiration for many a knockoff – were bought by Disney and Scott Rudin in a deal worth mid-six against seven figures after heavy bidding among multiple suitors.
Disney executive vice president production and development Brigham Taylor will oversee the big-screen version of the tongue-in-cheek manual, which gives today’s coddled youth instructions on potentially hazardous activities, such as how build go-carts and make a bow and arrow. It also provides trivia, historical anecdotes and advice on life that have inspired interest from fathers and nostalgic middle-aged men.
