Good news, YA horror novel fans – The Merciless is headed to the big screen!
According to Deadline, Pretty Little Liars creator and showrunner Marlene King is set to adapt the Danielle Vega book for a feature film from Lionsgate. She will also serve as an executive producer.
Oh, and did we mention the novel hasn’t even come out yet?! It doesn’t hit shelves until June 12!
In case you’re not familiar, the book centers on a new girl at a small-town high school who is taken in by the popular clique, only to have them compel her into joining them in a dangerous exorcism of a punky, rebellious classmate.
We can’t wait!
