At the end of 2009 the film rights to Lauren Kate's Fallen, which puts two fallen angels in a love triangle with a shy teenage girl, were snapped up, but then it was dead silence about the first of a hopeful four-part franchise. Finally, now we know the director and first two cast members.
Only one genre related Blu-ray hits stores this week -- Escape from L.A. -- but a decent crop of DVDs accompanies it, including the documentary to end all documentaries, Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy.
You can definitely tell DVD companies are counting on everyone to have already bought all the videos they plan to give out this holiday season -- with the highlight of this week's releases being C Me Dance, I think you can see where this is going.
Fallen is designed to be the first in a four-part book series that is just like Twilight but with a troubled teenage girl torn between two studly rival fallen angels. Someone at Disney must have been given marching orders to find the studio its own Twilight franchise because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the company just snatched up the movie rights to Fallen, a book only published two days ago.
