Par wades into 'Swim' pool


Paramount has purchased film rights to "Swim the Fly," a young-adult novel by Don Calame.

The book, the first in a proposed trilogy, is a teen comedy in the "American Pie" mold about three high school friends who make a pact to see a girl naked by summer's end. Candlewick published the novel three weeks ago.

Calame, repped by the Bohrman Agency, will adapt the screenplay.

Calame co-wrote, with Chris Conroy, screenplays for the 2006 Lionsgate comedy "Employee of the Month" and Disney Channel's 2001 telefilm "Hounded." (partialdiff)
