The Man Who Wrote The Greatest Screenplay Of All Time Is Adapting Vampire Academy

Mark Waters, the director of Mean Girls, is to direct a feature film based upon the Vampire Academy novels by Richelle Mead. Better still, Mark’s brother Dan has written the screenplay.

That’s Dan Waters, the author of Heathers, the greatest screenplay of all time.

Okay, that’s arguable. But I’ll happily have that argument any day of the week.

According to producer Don Murphy, casting on the film begins immediately. It might take me just a little longer to buy the first Vampire Academy book – something I never previously invisioned myself doing, but now I can’t resist. I’m so curious.

Here’s a blurb from Amazon.

St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . .

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

As I said, not a book I ever thought I’d read.
