Dimension Films announced today that it has acquired the rights to the popular futuristic comedy guidebook HOW TO DEFEAT YOUR OWN CLONE written by Kyle Kurpinski and Terry D. Johnson. Ed Ricourt who wrote the feature treatment is also set to adapt the script. Ricourt was part of the Marvel writing program, and his script NOW YOU SEE ME is currently in pre-production, starring Jesse Eisenberg and to be directed by Louis Letterier. There is no director on CLONE attached at this early stage.

Synopsis:
In the year 2013 the first human clone was created and within years clones were in most homes only to be taken advantage of by their human owners and treated as slaves. Following a revolution, civil war erupted between Mankind and their Clone creations who were fighting for their freedom. The Clones won. In this new world where Clones dominate, we follow Ethan on his quest to turn the tide of the war back in our favor against impossible odds. Clones may have the same DNA blueprint as humans, but they are younger, stronger, healthier and more evolved. Is Mankind prepared to outsmart and defeat their own clones?

“I’m excited to be working with Gotham and Ed Ricourt and feel this story has a fun and unique take on cloning that will be an entertaining movie for audiences,” said Bob Weinstein.

"When I first found this book, I knew it had amazing potential for an exciting and unique film, and Ed Ricourt has delivered upon that potential. As a producer, I couldn't be more energized to be in business with Bob and my former colleagues at TWC/Dimension. This is the right home for this movie,” said Eric Robinson of The Gotham Group.

How to Defeat Your Own Clone: And Other Tips for Surviving the Biotech Revolution is currently available on Amazon.
