It’s been the better part of the year since last we reported on the live action adaptation of Melissa Marr’s novel Wicked Lovely, the story of a teenage girl who has seen dangerous faeries her entire life, and since then there have been a couple of changes. Namely a change in directors.
It was originally announced that Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry, Stop-Loss) would be the one at the helm, but now THR is reporting that Mary Harron (American Psycho) is in negotiations to direct Wicked Lovely, Universal’s teen fantasy project being produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions.
Wicked Lovely is based on the first of a series of best-selling Harper Collins novels by Marr.
The following is a synopsis of Wicked Lovely from Amazon:
Rule #3: Don’t stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty — especially if they learn of her Sight — and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.
Rule #2: Don’t speak to invisible faeries.
Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.
Rule #1: Don’t ever attract their attention.
But it’s too late. Keenan is the Summer King who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost—regardless of her plans or desires.
Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
