20th Century Studios Adapting YA Book ‘Feed’

Feed, one of the most acclaimed novels in the last two decades is getting a movie treatment via 20th Century Studios, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Released in 2002, Feed is a young adult dystopian novel of the cyberpunk subgenre written by M. T. Anderson. The novel focuses on issues such as corporate power, consumerism, information technology, data mining, and environmental decay, with a sometimes sardonic, sometimes somber tone. From the first-person perspective of a teen boy, the book takes place in a near-futuristic American culture completely dominated by advertising and corporate exploitation, corresponding to the enormous popularity of internetworking brain implants.

The studio has tapped 25-year-old Stanley Kalu, a Nigerian filmmaker to write and direct the project, which marks his directorial debut. Zachary Green will produce.

Feed will be directed and produced via Kalu and Green’s newly launched Bantu, Inc. banner, whose mission is to produce socially relevant films from diverse filmmakers, to create impactful social change through the medium of film and television.

Despite winning multiple publishing awards, the book landed the 68th spot on the American Library Association’s list of most commonly banned and challenged books in the United States between 2010 and 2019.
