Well, there has been another bidding war in Hollywood, and another studio gets to emerge victorious. The Hollywood Reporterannounced that Warner Bros. have purchased the film rights to Josh Lieb's young adult novel, I Am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President (and while I'm normally not a huge fan of overly long titles, this one is pretty cute).

The story centers on a chubby and awkward 13-year-old boy with the reputation of being the dumbest student in the seventh grade. What his classmates don't know is that, in fact, the boy is actually an evil genius with one of the largest fortunes on the planet. He's even got an underground lair underneath his suburban split-level. In an attempt to please his do-gooder dad, he comes up with the idea of running for class president.
