Writer Darren Lemke has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the upcoming big-screen version of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
Based on the popular video-game series and TV spin-off, the game centers on Carmen Sandiego, the greatest detective at the ACME agency. When she becomes the world’s greatest thief, it’s up to her former partner to follow her clues and track her down. But when their cat and mouse game leads to a bigger mystery that implicates the agency itself, the partner questions whether Carmen is a really a thief — or a hero.
The project is being produced by Jennifer Lopez, who may also be interested in starring in the film.
Lemke has written scripts for Shrek Forever After and Jack the Giant Killer.
