    Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange series has been optioned by Shaftesbury Films for a TV series. Livingston announced this on her webpage. In the official announcement, Shaftesbury U.S. head Maggie Murphy said “By putting a refreshingly darker spin on classic fairy lore, Wondrous Strange offers an entirely new fantasy world that has never been seen before, with empowering, believable characters who speak directly to the young female demographic.”




    Following up on the huge success of The Fault in our Stars movie adaptation, John Green’s award winning first novel, Looking for Alaska, will be coming out as a movie next year. Sarah Polley will be writing the movie’s screenplay. More info here.
