Lisa Desrochers' successful young adult trilogy, Personal Demons, has been picked up for development at Ineffable Pictures. The series includes Personal Demons, Original Sin and Last Rite, a supernatural trio with a touch of the Twilights about its heroine Frannie Cavanaugh's high-school love triangle with good guy Gab(riel) and badass hunk Luc(ifer). Eat your heart out, John Milton.
Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments, Daughter of Smoke And Bone, Matched... the list of young-adult fiction on, or en route to the big screen is swelling so quickly Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer will burn out trying to come up with terrible spoofs quickly enough.
Not all bad news, though, and Frannie Cavanaugh's legion of fans will be as delighted as her creator by the news. “I’m thrilled that Jesse Israel and the Ineffable Pictures team share my love of this trilogy and its characters,” said Desrochers.
Ineffable is currently working with Paramount on an adaptation of Colleen Houck's Tiger's Curse.
