Dis books duo to adapt kids 'Kill You' thriller

Walt Disney Pictures has hired Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard to write "I'd Tell You, but Then I'd Have to Kill You," an adaptation of a young-adult novel by Ally Carter. Debra Martin Chase is producing. Carter's book centers on a 15-year-old girl who attends an elite spy-training academy in Washington and must deal with the mystery surrounding the death of her CIA agent father, her "Alias"-style spy education and a cute, off-limits civilian boy who doesn't know her true identity. The book was published in the fall by Hyperion Kids, which bought the manuscript in a pre-emptive publishing deal. (Sheigh Crabtree)
