MOVIE NEWS!!

I couldn't be more ecstatic to share the news that I've sold the film rights to The Forest of Hands and Teeth to Seven Star Pictures!!!!!!!  Super SQUEE!!!

Here's what Publishers Weekly says about the deal:
Alan Nevins of Renaissance Literary & Talent has just closed film rights on Carrie Ryan's YA novel, The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Nevins, who brokered the deal on behalf of Jim McCarthy at Dystel Literary, sold the book, which Delacorte Books for Young Readers published in March, to Seven Star Pictures (K-11, forthcoming). Nevins said the book, a zombie thriller set in colonial times about a girl who lives in a religious community in the woods and is equally worried about a zombie invasion and her planned marriage, is in line to "do for zombies what Twilight did for vampires." Supposedly Seven Star is developing the project for an-as-yet-unnamed A-list starlet, and fast-tracking the project with a first draft of the screenplay already in the works.
I totally still freak out just reading it!  Haha!!  It's also cool that Seven Star has added a little blurb about the project (complete with awesome photo) here.  Which, let me tell you, seeing that makes it feel totally real.

For those of you who are friends on facebook, you might remember me posting a while back about having a really good day (complete with picture) here.  That was the day I found out that all of this might be happening and the pic was taken when JP and I went out to celebrate!   It was, indeed, a really great day :)

So hooray!!!!  And huge thanks to Saundra Mitchell for answering my stupid questions and then making art to celebrate :)  Hugs and squees all around!!!!

You know, my mother and I both said the same thing when we finished reading the book: "This would make a FANTASTIC movie." I guess we were right! Congrats on the awesomeness, Carrie. :D (And, I must say, you've now been put on my "people that I am jealous of" list. Lol.)
