As reported by Variety, DreamWorks has picked up screen rights to The 39 Clues, a multi-platform adventure series set to launch in the fall by Scholastic Media. Director Steven Spielberg is considering the project.

The 39 Clues launches September 9 and is envisioned as a 10-book series to be released over two years. It's meant to be a multimedia adventure that will include a set of collectible cards and an online game that will serve as a portal as young readers try to solve a mystery for a grand prize of $10,000. Interesting, no?

The focus of The 39 Clues is the most powerful family in the world, the Cahills, who count Napoleon and Houdini among their relatives.
