My very adult, very cultured response to this one was “holy crap!”. According to Page to Premier, Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s first Lux book, Obsidian, will be heading to the big screen.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Sierra Pictures has acquired Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout, the first of the Lux series, to adapt it for the big screen. Nick Meyer and Marc Schaberg of the production company will executive produce, with Sierra financing and producing the movie. Sierra/Affinity senior vice president of production and acquisitions Kelly McCormick and senior vice president of sales Kristen Figeroid chased and purchased the rights.
Synopsis: The story follows Katy Swartz as she moves to rural West Virginia just before her senior year, resigned to a life of boredom. Things look up when she meets Daemon Black, her neighbor, but she quickly finds herself infuriated by his arrogance. However, Daemon and his sister soon turn out to have otherworldly powers with a galaxy of enemies pursuing them, with Katy caught in their crosshairs.
I know that it is way, way too early to consider this a done deal (case in point, Dreamworks picking up the Fever series), but I just didn’t see that one coming. I love Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing, as I have said over and over (ok, and over), and I do so hope that this one works out. Last year I did a post about all of the books that were being adapted, and it looks like it is time to do an updated list, since every other day you hear about another one.
