    Legendary Pictures Finds Brilliance

    Source: Deadline , Marcus Sakey
    March 12, 2013





    Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to Marcus Sakey's forthcoming sci-fi/superhero novel Brilliance, Deadline reports. Set for release in July, the book is officially described as follows:

    In Wyoming, a little girl reads people�s darkest secrets by the way they fold their arms. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible by being where no one is looking. They�re called �brilliants,� and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in�and betray his own kind.

    Joe Roth and Palak Patel, fresh off the tremendous success that Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful, are attached to produce alongside Alex Hedlund.
