A bit of news on two books that haven’t even been published yet, but are already on their way to becoming movies:
- New Line acquired the rights to Maggie Stiefvater‘s young adult novel The Raven Boys before it is released next week. Akiva Goldsman will produce the adaptation, “a love story with a twist revolves around the offspring of psychic parents who is told that if she find her true love and kisses him then he will die.”
- Universal hired Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) to adapt 90 Church: The True Story of the Narcotics Squad from Hell into a script about “a green recruit whose eyes are opened by working in the corrupt Federal Narcotics Bureau in New York City in the 1960s.” Dean Unkefer‘s book doesn’t come out until May 2013. Rupert Sanders is attached to direct.
Hit the jump for both book synopses.
