It’s been a few days since we’ve heard about any new young adult novels being adapted for the big screen so of course it’s time for another! Here’s the first word on Half Bad, the beginning of a trilogy that takes place in a world inhabited by covert witches.
Per Deadline, Fox 2000 has acquired film rights to Sally Green’s debut book, Half Bad, a contemporary supernatural thriller that will be published under the Penguin imprint in spring 2014. It deals with two factions of witches, one good and the other evil (of course), which are divided by hatred but united by one thing — fear of a boy descended from both sides.
The adaptation will be produced by Karen Rosenfelt, whose recent films include The Twilight Saga, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and The Book Thief.
Look for more soon!
