The son of late rocker Frank Zappa is to have a film made out his children's book, after movie mogul Jerry Bruckheimer and studio Disney picked up the rights for GBP1.5 million (GBP835,000).

Ahmet Zappa's MONSTROUS MEMOIRS OF A MIGHTY McFEARLESS, which he also illustrated, follows a brother and sister who set out to rescue their father from different creatures.

Musician/writer/actor Zappa, who is married to actress Selma Blair, says, "I wrote the book for kids, and all these grown-ups are telling me they enjoyed it."
