Variety reports that Unique Features has hired screenwriter Nick Pustay to adapt Maggie Stiefvater’s Shiver for the big screen!
“At the core is this heartbreaking love story, between two people who know that their time together is slipping away,” Pustay said.
I’ve been tracking news about a Shiver movie on Portland Books Examiner, too. Here’s news about when the movie rights were first optioned in September:
It’s only been in stores since August, but Magie Stiefvater’s quickly best-selling Young Adult novel Shiver is headed for the big screen.
Variety reports that Unique Features has picked up the movie rights to Shiver – the first in a planned trilogy about a human-werewolf romance.
Then in December, word got out that Warner Bros. had picked up the option:
According to author Maggie Stiefvater, Warner Brothers has optioned the movie rights to her best-selling novel Shiver.
We reported in September, that Unique Features had optioned the rights for the Young Adult novel about a romance between a teenage girl and a boy who spends his winters as a werewolf.
On her official Twitter page, Stiefvater now says that Warner Brothers has picked up the option:
It’s been optioned by Warner Bros., but it’s very early stages!
For the comments: Okay, fantasy casting time! Who would you cast as Sam and Grace in a movie version of Shiver?
