What? Disney to make their own Twilight: Saga with Angels instead of Vampires?!?
That’s right kids of America, your beloved Vampires are now as good as a Walkman and Angels are the new iPod! Apparently some trend experts are saying that Angels are the new black…um sure, ok!
Disney has acquired the rights to a novel by Lauren Kate called “Fallen,”. The book, released earlier in the week by Delacorte Books, and is aimed at young adult readers.
Just take a little gander at the ol’ story premise…
Fallen is part of a four-tome series that centers on an alienated girl torn between two charismatic young men, unaware that they are fallen angels who have battled over her for centuries.
All four books were included in the deal Mark Ciardi and Gordon Gray will produce the film adaptation through their Mayhem Production banner. Oren Aviv and Todd Murata will oversee the supernatural romantic thriller for Disney, and Victor Constantino will cover for Mayhem. Disney is also teamed with Mayhem on Secretariat, starring Diane Lane, and Fox is teamed with Mayhem on The Tooth Fairy, starring Dwayne Johnson which is due in January.
Stay tuned for more on this little nugget.
