Nick Pustay (“Ramona and Beezus,” “Aquamarine”) is set to adapt Sophie Jordan’s recently released young-adult fantasy novel “Firelight” for Mandalay Pictures says Heat Vision.
The “Twilight with dragons” story follows Jacinda, a young girl who is a “draki,” a descendant of dragons who can morph into human form, and who is ordained to marry another of her kind.
When the girl’s mother moves the family to live among humans for safety reasons, Jacinda puts her family at risk when she falls for a member of a secret dragon-hunting society.
Cathy Schulman is producing. Pustay is also working on an adaptation of the teen werewolf romance tale “Shiver” for Unique Features.
