Michael Bay believes that reading is good -- but watching movies is better!

Variety reports that Paramount has optioned the upcoming novel, 'Gideon's Sword,' for Bay to produce under his Bay Films banner. The book is set to be published in February 2011 by Grand Central Publishing.

'Gideon's Sword' is the first in a techno-thriller series revolving around a character named Gideon Crew. The novel was written by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, who have collaborated on 13 New York Times bestsellers, dating back to 'The Relic' (which was also optioned by Paramount) in 1995.
