Summit Entertainment has one, Lionsgate has one, and, now, New Line have finally joined the YA trend by acquiring one of the season’s biggest new titles. [THR]
The studio will adapt The Raven Boys, the latest novel from Scorpio Races author Maggie Stiefvater. The book – which will release on September 18th, as those interested should know – is one of a four part series, following Blue Sargent, a teen girl from a long line of clairvoyants who can predict when someone is near death. She meets one ill-fated boy named Gansey, a rich student at a local private school who belongs to a troubled foursome known as the Raven Boys. Soon Blue becomes caught up in their strange and sinister world as the group sets out on a quest for the paranormal that will change their lives forever.
Producing is Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), with New Line’s Andrea Johnston and Dave Neustadter overseeing the project. Writers are currently being sought out for the adaptation.
