I have not read the series of four novels by Becca Fitzpatrick called the Hush, Hush Saga. I have seen them in bookstores in the Young Adult section because they have distinctive covers. Today, LD Entertainment announced that they acquired the film rights to all four of the books in the saga; Hush, Hush, Crescendo, Silence, and Finale. The books are New York Times bestsellers, and the last book was just published at the end of October.
Patrick Sean Smith (writer for TV series Greek and Everwood) will write the screenplay and production is expected to start in Fall 2013.
Author Fitzpatrick had this 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.”
Below is the book synopsis for the first book, Hush, Hush:
“Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen – and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.”
