While so many young adult fantasy franchises (Beautiful Creatures, The Host, The Mortal Instruments, Percy Jackson) have fallen by the wayside this year and disappointed at the box office, the allure of a new Twilight or Hunger Games keeps Hollywood coming back for more. Ridley Scott is the latest bu be lured in, as Deadline reports that the Alien director has optioned the rights to Fae by Colet and Jasmine Abedi.
The first book in the trilogy was published last summer by Diversion Books and centers on Caroline Ellis, who has just turned 16, a birthday that triggers a fated battle between the Dark and Light Fae. This forces Caroline to confront who she is and discover whether her relationship with Devilyn Reilly, who's struggling with the power of the Dark within him, will destroy them both along with humanity.
