Brad Peyton, director of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, will be directing a film adaptation of the novel Monument 14 from author Emmy Laybourne.

The first novel is an unlikely jumping off point for a post-apocalyptic young adult trilogy. It’s best described asThe Breakfast Club set after the apocalypse. A group of teens are trapped together in a chain superstore and face the prospect of life, death and love and hate while the world as they know it ends right outside. That book was published in June, and the followup, Monument 14: Sky On Fire, will be published next June by the Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group imprint Feiwell & Friends.
