I get it. Chicks like romance. So do some guys. But for god’s sake when will these attempts to capture the Twilight crowd cease? Not happening! It was lightning in a bottle, guys! In any event get ready for more supernatural themed sap to be splooged into your laps.
Variety reports that former New Line toppers Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye are moving ahead on the supernatural romance Shiver, hiring Nick Pustay (Ramona and Beezus) to adapt the novel for their Unique Features shingle.
Shiver, penned by Maggie Stiefvater, centers on a bittersweet romance between a teen girl and a boy who becomes a wolf each winter. As the temperature drops, the race to keep him human begins. The first installment was published by Scholastic Press in August and has been on the bestseller lists for 31 weeks. A sequel Linger, will be published in August.
“At the core is this heartbreaking love story between two people who know that their time together is slipping away,” Pustay said. OK, I’m sold — on buying me some silver bullets and taking out this broody kid before he can join a no doubt waiting clan of underwear-wolves!
