BOOM!'s Ross Richie has this movie thing locked down, figuring out a way to double dip with 20th Century Fox. In June, the publisher and the studio announced a "strategic investment" in which Fox gives BOOM! money and first look rights. Now, Fox has bought the film rights to Golden Vance, after paying BOOM! to allow them first pick.

Rashida Jones will write and direct the feature, while Kerry Washington will produce. Richie and Stephen Christy will also produce.

Goldie Vance, created by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams, follows a precocious 16-year-old, who has ambitions of becoming a historic Miami hotel's in-house detective. She gets embroiled in uncovering an international crime ring that challenges her in ways she never imagined.
