Warner Bros. purchased the film rights for Kiera Cass’ Selection series!

“Warner Bros has won film rights to Kiera Cass’ global bestseller The Selection, the first of a five-novel series, and has set Black List scribe Katie Lovejoy to adapt it. DiNovi Pictures’ Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan are producing with Pouya Shahbazian. Lovejoy’s script The Arsonist Love Story made the 2010 Black List.

This is so freaking exciting!! Although I am a little late with the news, I am just glad to hear the news. I absolutely love the Selection series and can’t wait for Kiera Cass’ untitled fifth book coming out in 2016. I just have to say her main character named America (corny I know) who is both kind and beautiful, the interesting plot of an utopian society, and the romance between Maxon and America.

From Kiera Cass’ website describing The Selection “as The Hunger Games without the bloodshed, it follows 35 underprivileged girls who are chosen to compete to live in a life of luxury. The protagonist, America Singer, is sweet on a young man from her district, but when she’s exposed to the opulence of a royal life, she’s conflicted, even though a rebel uprising threatens the pampered.”
