Two new supernatural books are in the works to become new movie adaptations.
The first is Young Adult novel Wicked Lovelyby Melissa Marr. The book is the first in a series about a 17-year-old girl who can see fairies. But these aren’t your Disney pixies … in Wicked Lovely, the fairy world (or “faery”) is a cruel place, and the teenage protagonist finds herself pursued as a potential spouse for the faery king. Now, Variety reports that Universal Studios has acquired the film rights for Wicked Lovelyand hired “Edward Scissorhands” screenwriter Caroline Thompson to adapt it.
Also from Variety — Fox 2000 is working on an adaptation of Justin Cronin’s soon-to-be publishedt vampire novel The Passage. Variety reports that Fox 2000 has hired John Logan to adapt the story — with Ridley Scott lined up as a potential director. Fox 2000 acquired the rights two years ago.
