Adaptation of the young adult series on the way.
Indie studio LD Entertainment (‘The Grey,’ ‘The Collection’) has announced that it has optioned the feature film rights to Becca Fitzpatrick’s international best-selling series, ‘The Hush, Hush Saga.’
The series centres on 16-year-old Nora Grey, whose life quickly changes when she meets Patch, a mysterious new bad boy in school. Her instincts tell her to stay away from him, but Nora can’t help being drawn to his undeniable charm. As they get closer, Nora finds herself in dangerous situations and begins to realize that Patch is actually a fallen angel with harmful intentions.
First published in 2010, ‘Hush, Hush’ was on the New York Times bestseller list for 36 weeks and has been sold in more than 35 countries. Fitzpatrick wrote three additional novels, with the final book in the series, ‘Finale,’ arriving on shelves Oct. 23rd 2012.
The adaptation will be written by Patrick Sean Smith (‘Greek’) with production expected to begin in the autumn.
“Fans of the book have been clamoring for a movie since Hush, Hush’ debuted and I’m thrilled to let them know that the film rights have sold to LD Entertainment. It’s exciting to think that Patch and Nora’s story will be brought to life on the big screen,” said Fitzpatrick.
