FILM: J.J. Abram's Scavenger Hunt

Producers pull film ideas from all types of sources. It's most common for them to adapt best sellers and graphic novels, but every now and then a published article turns into a screenplay.

J.J. Abrams snatched up the film rights to Penelope Green's New York Times article, where she described a remarkable architectural find. There's an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that has several secret compartments that the owners turned into an educational scavenger hunt for their four children with the help of Eric Clough, a young architect. The game has clues of several historical figures, a fictional book and a soundtrack. I imagine it'll be something like National Treasure...but wayyyy cooler.

These are pictures of some of the clues hidden in the apartment. Click here for more pics!
