Ungifted by Gordon Korman: The 39 Clues series still in development

In a Nikki Fink exlusive "Walden Media has optioned screen rights to Ungifted, a Gordon Korman novel that will be published fall 2012 through the Balzer + Bray imprint of HarperCollins. Korman is the author of two installments of the 39 Clues series that DreamWorks is developing as a film. Ungifted is the story of a 14-year-old kid of average intelligence who’s accidentally placed in a school of gifted students and tries to hide among the brainiacs to escape punishment for a prank he pulled at his old school. He eventually shakes up the uptight, socially awkward advanced students and learns something about his own capabilities. Walden’s Amanda Morgan Palmer and Michael Bostick brought in the book and will hire a writer shortly. The author was repped by Curtis Brown."

Are your kids reading the 39 Clues series of books? Supposedly Brett Ratner is onboard to direct for producer Stephen Speilberg, with a release date sometime in 2014.

Updated 11/2017: Ungifted is still in development and Brett Ratner is one of the Hollywood filmmakers being accused by multiple women of sexual harassment.
