Mary Harron Gets “Wicked Lovely”

“American Psycho” director Mary Harron is in negotiations to direct the teen fantasy drama “Wicked Lovely” for Universal Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the first of a series of novels by Melissa Marr, the story centres on a teenage girl who can see the hidden faery world but confronts danger when not only do the faeries discover her ability, but also when one king decides she must be his bride.

Caroline Thompson (“Edward Scissorhands,” “Corpse Bride”) wrote the script while Vince Vaughn, Valeri Vaughn and Peter Billingsley will produce. Harron replaces the previously attached Kimberly Pierce.
