DreamWorks Pictures has pre-emptively acquired poet and author Francesca Haig’s “The Fire Sermon,” the first in a proposed trilogy of young adult novels.
Set four hundred years after an apocalypse, a technology-free society now exists made up entirely of twins. One of each set is perfect, the other slightly mutated.
An apartheid system forces the mutated twins to settlements, even though when one twin dies, so does the other.
The focus is on a brother and sister twin, and what happens when he becomes a leader in the repressed society. Carla Hacken is set to produce.
