When last we reported on the development of the Vampire Academy adaptations, we were only half-way through the Twilight Saga.  Now, it looks like the first of six possible films is set up with stars Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures) and Lucy Fry (Lightning Point) playing the leads of Rose and Lissa with Mark Waters (Mean Girls) directing from a Daniel Waters (Heathers) script.  Based on the best-selling young adult book series by Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy centers on half-human Dhampir bodyguards and their vampire charges who both train at St. Vladimir’s Academy.  The film treatment will also get the catchy new title of Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters in preparation for an ongoing franchise of adaptations.  Hit the jump for more.

vampire-academy-book-coverDeadline reports that the Waters brothers are part of the creative team behind Vampire Academy along with producers Michael Preger, Don Murphy, Susan Montford and Deepak Nayer; IM Global’s Stuart Ford is executive producer.  The adaptation will also star Danila Kozlovski (We Are From The Future) as Dmitri. In addition to the six possible features from this series, Mead has spun off some characters into a Bloodlines series which may also be optioned in the future.

Here’s the description from Mead’s first book in the Vampire Academy series (via Amazon):

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.
