Deadline reports that Addison Timlin (Californication) and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse) are set to star in Fallen for Lotus Entertainment and Mayhem Pictures. The film is an adaptation of Lauren Kate's young adult novel series. Scott Hicks (Shine) will direct, based on a script by Kathryn Price and Nicole Millard, with the most recent draft by Michael Ross. Lotus will finance, handle foreign sales and produce with Mayhem,
Here's a synopsis: Fallen is the first in a four-part series, a Gothic romantic thriller that centers around Luce (Timlin), a shy teen who is suspected of killing a boy and is sent to Sword and Cross reform school. The school is filled with frequent supernatural occurrences and it becomes clear that the majority of students are fallen angels on the side of good or evil. A battle commences and a love story with deadly consequences for Luce is formed with two male students who have dark secrets of their own.
Kate's follow-up novels (Torment, Passion and Rapture) were also bestsellers. Mayhem's Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will produce with Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel of Lotus Entertainment. Silver Reel's Claudia Bluemhuber will executive produce and Campbell McInnes of Lotus will oversee the project. The producers are in discussions for domestic distribution.
Timlin was last in Stand Up Guys and just finished the Ryan Murphy/Jason Blum-produced remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown for MGM.
