Hey, it’s Liv. I, again, have exciting news. Another one of my favorite series have been chosen to become a movie! Warner Bros. has won the rights to The Selection series by Keira Cass.
The Selection is the first book in the five novel Selection series. The last two book focus on descendants of the main characters. For those of you who don’t know, The Selection follows 35 girls, one from each region of Illea, the country that once was America, as they participate in a competition that will decide who is the next queen and will rule beside the young and handsome Prince Maxon.
Allison Greenspan and Denise DiNovi of DiNovi Pictures’ will produce the movie alongside Pouya Shahbazian. Katie Lovejoy is set to adapt the novel for the big screen.
Katie Lovejoy wrote the script for The Arsonist Love Story made the 2010 Blacklist. I’m really excited to see where this goes, hopefully this will make it to the big screen, because there have been two attempts by The CW to make it a television show, which, ultimately, never made it past the pilot. So sad. Anyway, I will try to update you guys as fast as possible on any news that is released. Are you guys as excited about this as I am? Who would you cast for the main characters? Also, don’t forget to pick up The Heir by Kiera Cass on May 5th!
