After what seemed like a small hiatus or at least slow-down of adapting "young adult novels," Disney has popped up to announce that they are moving forward with an adaptation of Kat Falls' Dark Life, with Robert Zemeckis on board to direct.

Disney and Zemeckis to Journey Into Dark Life

Dark Life is set in a near-future world in which rising ocean levels and natural catastrophes have led some people to homestead on the ocean floor, and kids to develop supernatural powers. Story centers on an underwater teenage boy and a surface girl who join forces to uncover a government conspiracy.

Disney is excited about the project for a number of reasons. First off, it fits their new mandate to create family friendly films that can be horizontally integrated onto other platforms. Better yet, the book could launch a potential franchise.

Now the next question is whether to use Zemeckis' favored performance-capture process, which I hate to say is on its last leg.
