Warner Bros. Acquires Young Adult Sci-Fi Invisibility Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 05.06.2014
A new supernatural romance...
Despite the failure of several recent young adult genre films (see: Vampire Academy, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The Host), Hollywood isn't giving up. THR reports that Warner Bros. has picked up the film rights to Invisibility. The 2013 novel was written by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan.
The novel is about a 16-year-old boy who is literally invisible. He then meets and falls for his new neighbor, the one person who can actually see him. The two the set out to discover the truth behind his affliction, uncovering curses and spells along the way.
No writer or producer are yet attached to the project. Levithan wrote Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, which became a film in 2008 and turned a profit for Screen Gems.
