You read the headline right! The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa has been optioned into a movie by Palomar Pictures! What does this mean? The book has the ability to become a movie! It won't be a sure thing until a director is attached and production goes under way. Sometimes that can take years or not even happen at all. But this is the first huge step towards seeing the book on screen! I heaven't read the book yet, but I'm going to get my hands on it - the reviews have been amazing!
Palomar Pictures is an independent company that has been involved in movies like Wild at Heart and Killer Elite. I don't know much about the production company, but I think it could be a good fit. Here is the official press release:
LOS ANGELES and TORONTO, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Independent film production company Palomar Pictures today announced that it has optioned Blood of Eden, the newest series from New York Times bestselling young adult author Julie Kagawa. The Immortal Rules, the highly anticipated first book in the Blood of Eden series, will be published by Harlequin TEEN on April 24, 2012.
