While the big names in comics and graphic novels get their shots at the big screen, it's always nice when more of an indie title – in this case, Boom! Studios Goldie Vance – heads towards screens. Kerry Washington and Rashida Jones are working on an adaptation.

Washington will produce and Jones will write and direct the film, which adapts Hope Larson's title about a 16-year girl, the daughter of the owner of a Miami resort, who dreams of becoming the place's in-house detective. 20th Century Fox nabbed the rights to the book, illustrated by Brittney Williams.

"I’m ecstatic to be collaborating with Rashida and Boom! Studios on telling this story. Fox is the perfect home for this project. Goldie Vance will steal your heart. She’s already stolen mine!" Washington says. And Jones adds, "Goldie is exactly the kind of fearless, curious and funny heroine we need right now. I'm so honored to partner with Kerry Washington, Boom! Studios and Fox to bring her world to life."

There's no date set for the film just yet. Washington continues to appear on US TV's Scandal in addition to producing other projects, while Jones has the lead in comedy show Angie Tribeca and is an executive producer on drama-comedy Claws.
