Based on the 1983 play, the story reolves around a group of teenagers in 19th century Germany as they discover their budding sexuality. The original play courted much controversy due to its masturbation, abortion, rape and suicide references

Steven Sater, who penned the original book and stage lyrics, is developing the big screen project with McG.

The Terminator helmer is also tied to the espionage thriller Dead Spy Running and a 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea remake.
