Yet another teenage based tale of terror is coming to the CW television network, and we’re starting to wonder … doesn’t scary shit happen to adults anymore? Or maybe we’re just a little wiser and don’t find ourselves in the stupid situations that today’s youth do. One thing’s for certain … we won’t be banging any sparkling vampires any time soon, that’s for sure.
According to The Hollywood Reporter the CW has just greenlit a live action adaptation of Tara Bray Smith’s novel Betwixt. Feature writer Elizabeth Chandler (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) has penned the script for the full film pilot and is executive producing with Paul Stupin (Make It or Break It).
For three teenagers dark mystery has always lurked at the corner of the eyes and the edge of sleep. Beautiful Morgan D’Amici wakes in her trailer park home with dirt and blood under her fingernails. Paintings come alive under Ondine Mason’s violet-eyed gaze. Haunted runaway Nix Saint-Michael sees halos of light around people about to die.
At a secret summer rave in the woods, the three teenagers learn of their true, changeling nature and their uncertain, intertwined destinies. Riveting, unflinching, beautiful, Betwixt shows a magic as complex and challenging as any ordinary reality.
