In an effort to try to stay ahead of the next YA craze, producer Scott Steindorff has acquired the feature rights to Origin, a debut novel from 22-year-old author, Jessica Khoury. The novel centers on Pia, a young heroine created by scientists and gifted with immortality. On her 17th birthday, Pia escapes the compound in the Amazon jungle and heads off on an adventure with a local village boy, Pio, in search of her true origin. The blend of romance and action should provide a draw to a wide audience with the inevitable water mark set by The Hunger Games. Hit the jump for more on Origin.
