Happy Mainstream Monday guys!!!
As you know all of us here at the Ink Puddle are pretty big fans of books to film and there have been a few more to add to your radar for possible must sees in the next few years.
Embrace by Jessica Shirvington has been picked up by the CW as a new tv show that is said to be the next Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The only news is that there is a script prepared but nothing else. The story is centered around Violet, who becomes a key piece in the secret war between fallen angels and the protectors of Earth. Along with angels there are magic tattoos and different small aspects that make me think of Cassandra Clare's shadowhunter series. Obviously not the same but similar. None the less the story the sounds pretty good and I, like a lot of people I've spoken to recently, are a little tired of vampires and happy to find something new.
Black City by Elizabeth Richards hasn't been released yet but it's right have already been taken by Screen Gems and they are currently looking for a screen writer. So it may be a while, if ever, for this book too. Black City is about wars between a Darkling race and humans. The main character falls for a forbidden half darkling guy. This is supposedly one of the most anticipated books of this year and is released November 13th.
If there are any Divergent series fans casting seems to be starting for the movie version. Shailene Woodley, from The Secret Life of the American Teenager and The Descendants, is the main rumored actress to portray Tris. I didn't really have anyone pictured for that character so to me she is as good as anyone else. It would probably be a good oppurtunity for her to show of her talents or lack there of. I'm excited to see who all will be casted for this movie.
