Paramount Pictures has bought the rights to a novel called “After” by first-time author Anna Todd, a 25-year-old Army wife who wrote the book after she was bored one day.
“I was reading fan fiction on Wattpad, but they were taking a little bit to update the stories, so I started writing my own stories to entertain myself. I didn’t think anyone would read it,” Anna told E! News.
“Tessa is a girl in college. It’s not me, but I’ve realized we have certain things in common,” Anna explained about the story. “The male lead in the story just looks like Harry Styles, but he is in college not in a band. All of the 1D boys are in the story. Liam [Payne] is Harry‘s stepbrother in the book. In the book Harry is Hardin, Louis [Tomlinson] is Logan, Liam is Landan, Niall [Horan] is Nate and Zayn [Malik] is Zedd.”
“There are definitely sex scenes,” Anna continued. “I mean, I was writing it for myself…There are adult scenes in the story. There is no S&M. They are regular sex scenes, but very detailed. It’s the vanilla version of Fifty Shades of Grey!”
