Warner Bros just won the rights to create a movie out of Daily Show writer Josh Lieb's book, I Am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the incredibly long titled movie is about an overweight 13 year old boy who everyone assumes is the stupidest kid in the seventh grade. However, in reality this boy is an evil genius and the third richest person on the planet.
The kid apparently runs a secret compound underneath his parents home in suburbia and has to play it cool cause he can't claim his empire until he turns 18. He is running for class president to impress his father. Unfortunately, the techniques he used to stage coups in South America do not translate perfectly to running in a middle-school campaign.
Yes, we can't wait to read it.
Penguin Books bought the proposal for the book. Warner Bros will be making the movie with McG directing.
