On the heels of the publication of the final installment of Becca Fitzpatrick's international best-selling series, The Hush, Hush Saga, LD Entertainment, the studio behind The Grey and The Collection, has optioned the film rights to the four young adult novels. Patrick Sean Smith, creator of the acclaimed television series Greek, will adapt the screenplay with production expected to begin in the fall of 2013.

First published in 2010 by Simon & Schuster, Hush, Hush was on The New York Times bestseller list for 36 weeks and has been sold in over 35 countries with over two million copies in print in the US. Fitzpatrick wrote three additional novels with the final installment of the series, Finale, which went on-sale on October 23rd, 2012.

Hush, Hush centers on sixteen-year-old Nora Grey whose life quickly changes when she meets Patch, a mysterious new bad boy in school. Her instincts tell her to stay away from him, but Nora can't help being drawn to his undeniable charm. As they get closer, Nora finds herself in dangerous inexplicable situations and begins to realize that Patch is actually a fallen angel with harmful intentions.

Here's what author Becca Fitzpatrick had to say about the news.

"Fans of the book have been clamoring for a movie since Hush, Hush debuted and I'm thrilled to let them know that the film rights have sold to LD Entertainment. It's exciting to think that Patch and Nora's story will be brought to life on the big screen."

    @ejk1 -- The information of the URL was more than enough. I'll pass.

    The only thing that has me even remotely patient with a project like this is the hopes that the adapters may learn from their predecessors and at least strive to make the film a cinematic guilty pleasure (something the Hunger Games and Twilight have failed to be), because these stories have little else going for it.

    I'm sure the same applies here as it does to any decent romance or independent flick: add in a solid up and coming director, a strong budget, creative cinematography, and a decent cast, and you'll have a hit at least partially worth defending ("Uncertainty" comes to mind).

    Heck, they already have a leg up on Twilight by having a better title (just my opinion) and a better creature (fallen angels will infinitely be better than vamps). I've yet to read the books, so I don't know how terrible or decent this franchise is (though, I wonder what makes this fallen dude have harmful intentions?). All I can predict is that this'll be bad, but I just hope it's not worse than it needs to be.

    @ejk1 -- Well, that settles it. Lol. I don't think we can go any lower - romance wise - at this point.

    What about Ghost?

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Unless there is faulty information floating out there, I can think of at least two actresses, Anne Heche and Lucy Liu, that have claimed to have made love to a ghost.

    @ejk1 -- Why? Does it bother you? I've never heard of such a story, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, or is being written down on paper, at this very moment.
