Rights to the House of Night Young Adult Novel Series Sold to Davis Films
And another series of young adult novels is heading to the big screen. This time it's mother/daughter team P.C. and Kristin Cast's House of Night books that have been acquired by Davis Films, the production company behind the Silent Hill and Resident Evil films.
Here's the House of Night synopsis from Amazon:
The House of Night is a thrilling, New York Times bestselling book series that follows 16-year-old Zoey Redbird as she is “Marked” by a vampyre tracker and begins to undergo the “Change” into an actual vampyre. She has to leave her family in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and move into the House of Night, a boarding school for other fledgling vampyres like her.
It’s tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. Although Zoey has awesome new powers, it’s hard to fit in when everyone knows you’re “special.” As Zoey tries to make new friends and maybe find a hot boyfriend (or two), she comes up against all kinds of evil, from the perfect-looking, super-popular girl with not-so-faultless plans to the mysterious deaths happening at the House of Night and all over Tulsa. Things at the House of Night are not always what they seem. Can Zoey find the courage deep within herself to find the truth and embrace her destiny?
Per The Wrap Samuel Hadida, president of Davis Films, said in a written statement, "We are thrilled to bring P.C. and Kristin's stunning series of books to worldwide film audiences. They have created a world of adolescent growth against a backdrop of supernatural suspense that resonates around the world." He believes the House of Night series has "the same franchise potential" as Silent Hill and Resident Evil. (And maybe a certainly sparkly vampire tale that's about to end its box office domination?)
There are a total of nine House of Night tales with the most recent, Destined, being published just this past October 25th.
