Ralph Winter (“X-Men”) and Terry Botwick have acquired film rights to Bree Despain’s three-book young adult series and are planning a feature film to produce through their 1019 Entertainment banner reports Variety.
The first novel, “The Dark Divine”, centers on a 16-year-old pastor’s daughter who falls in love with a boy who reveals he’s a werewolf. The second novel, “The Lost Saint”, will be released at the end of the year.
Whitney Thomas will also produce. The company is developing at least two dozen projects including Paul Verhoeven’s “The Surrogate” and Akiva Goldsman’s “Man and Wire”.
