In one of the more bizarre adaptation decisions of recent times, JJ Abrams will be producing a silver screen version of a New York Times article, describing a luxury home on Fifth Avenue in New York.
The house in question, which actually exists, was built for the children of Steven Klinsky and Maureen Shelly as an indoor adventure playground. The architect designed the house with secret passages, historical puzzles and a number of other attractions, including a fictional book.
Abrams has been prolific of late, fitting in a little-known production named Star Trek, the monster film Cloverfield, his new television series Fringe and several other projects including the ongoing Lost. We suspect cloning or time machines may be involved.
