Based on Richelle Mead‘s popular book series, the novels tell the tale of Rose Hathaway, a seventeen year old girl who has a mental and spiritual bond with her vampire best friend Lissa. The two girls attend a special school for Vampires who struggle to retain some humanity while other Vampires become more feral.
The flick, which will be shot this summer, will be directed by Mark Waters, while his brother Daniel wrote the screenplay.
Producer Deepak Nayer shared, “On a creative level we love the story and the creative team. We also love the potential to do a series of six strong movies based on this beloved series of novels” he said. There could even be more as Mead has spun off characters from her Vampire Academy books into a second series, Bloodlines, two of which have already been released.”
Lucy Fry will star as Lissa and Danila Kozlovski will play the role of Dimitri.
