What could be dreamier for a young girl than having sparkly vampires and cute werewolf boys fighting over her? How about having two fallen angels fighting over her for centuries?
Disney's betting on the latter, having just optioned Young Adult author Lauren Kate's novel Fallen, the first in a projected four-volume series, that has just that premise, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The novel, which just came out this week from Delacorte Books for Young Readers, centers on a 17-year-old girl named Lucinda, who just like Isabella "Bella" Swan from Twilight has a name that is shortened to something nice and Latinate with an implied deeper meaning, "Luce." Luce goes to the Sword and Cross School, where she meets "Fallen" cuddle muffins Daniel and Cam.
Mark Ciardi, known for sports movies like The Rookie, Miracle, Invincible and The Game Plan, will produce along with longtime partner Gordon Gray.
So what do you think is next, folks? What could be even dreamier than the premise of Fallen? Leprechauns fighting over you? Pixies? Warring factions of Santa's elves?
