Books into Movies: Tiger's Curse (Screenwriter)

Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1)
 Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck was picked up by Paramount Pictures for a movie adaption back in December. Recently, one of my favorite screenwriters has been attached to pen the screenplay! 

Passion. Fate. Loyalty. Would you risk it all to change your destiny? The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever. Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

Julie Plec is set to write the screenplay! She is a showrunner for Vampire Diaries, which is my absolute favorite show on television right now! I'm so excited by this new. I haven't read the book, but there are very good reviews for it.

Since the screenplay has not been written yet, production won't begin for another estimated two years! The predicted release date is 2015. This is one of the many YA books being made into a movie. I'm sure the success of The Hunger Games has increased Hollywood's need for some YA adaptions.  I'm not complaining!

Have you read the book?  Have you seen Vampire Diaries? What do you think of the news? Thoughts below!
