WWPSP’s Vince Vaughn, Valeri Vaughn and Peter Billingsley are producing with Pukeko’s Martin Baynton and Adam Fratto, and Richard Taylor is exec producing. The project was grabbed back from turnaround by WWPSP, and it rears up again at a time when there is a strong market for female driven YA adaptations, after Divergent and The Fault In Our Stars. Marr’s book series has a global following and has been published in 26 languages. The script was written by Caroline Thompson, the scribe behind Edward Scissorhands and The Nightmare Before Christmas. In the novel, a teen girl who has seen dangerous faeries her entire life much suddenly go against everything she was taught to confront a world she was raised to fear.
Edward Scissorhands AND Nightmare Before Christmas? Not a bad track record.
