CBS Films Adapts Marie Lu’s “Legend”

CBS Films have announced that they’ve secured exclusive rights to Marie Lu’s upcoming futuristic thriller novel “Legend” as well as any sequels or spinoffs.

The story is set in a future when North America has split into two warring nations. The story follows Day, a young Robin Hood, and June, the teen prodigy hired to hunt him down; together they uncover an impossible truth about their totalitarian leaders.

Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey (“The Twilight Saga,” “Dear John”) will produce. Lu, who has planned the series out as a trilogy, will be involved at the scripting phase as an executive producer. The books themselves will be published in November.
