‘Hovercar’ is a sci-fi adventure story set in the near future; humans drive hover cars, vehicles that “float” a few feet off the ground because of a type of repulsion technology. In this future, humans still love to race things, so racing the fast hover cars becomes a popular sport. The novel is about Jason Chaser, a young man who attends Race School, and follows his journey to become the best ‘Hover Car Racer.’
Dan Harris is best known for writing ‘Superman Returns’ and ‘X2: X-Men United’ with Michael Dougherty. Two former ‘Smallville’ writers, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, are producing.
Disney has not set an official release date for the film.
