Plan B to adapt M.T. Anderson’s Landscape with Invisible Hand

Plan B has acquired the rights to adapt National Book Award-winning author M.T. Anderson‘s new novel Landscape with Invisible Hand for film, it was announced today.

Published last month to rave reviews and evocative of films as disparate as District 9 and The Truman Show, Landscape with Invisible Hand is told in a series of short, often humorous vignettes that presciently depict a near-future in which an alien species known as the “Vuvv” has taken over Earth. After the Vuvv’s labor-saving technology causes the Earth’s job market and global economy to collapse, a teen and his girlfriend cook up a way to make much-needed money by broadcasting their dating life to the fascinated aliens. Unfortunately, things go badly when, in the course of time, the two teens come to hate each other and can’t break up without bankrupting their families.

Plan B will produce the project as part of their overall deal production deal with Annapurna.

An award-winning author, M.T. Anderson has written stories across genres and for reading levels and audiences. His satirical book Feed was a finalist for the National Book Award and was the winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. The first volume of his “Octavian Nothing” saga won the National Book Award and The Boston Globe Horn Book Prize. Both the first and second volumes of that two-part series were Printz Honor Books.

The deal was negotiated by Kassie Evashevski at Anonymous Content on behalf of David McCormick at McCormick Literary.
