Rocket Pictures, the production company owned by Sir Elton John, has picked up the rights to Michael Buckly’s NERDS series in hopes of developing an animated motion picture.

The Nerds series follows a group of unpopular and socially inept geeks who run a spy network from inside their elementary school. They battle the Hyena, a former junior beauty pageant contestant-turned-assassin, and an array of James Bond-style villains, each with an evil plan more diabolical and more ridiculous than the last.

Rocket Pictures is currently developing Will Gallows and The Snake Pellied Troll, and released Gnoemo and Juliet last year.
