The Forest of Hands and Teeth movie?

Carrie Ryan's young adult zombie novel The Forest of Hands and Teeth has just been sold to Seven Star Pictures, the studio behind Kristen Stewart's upcoming movie K-11.

The novel, which was published in March by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, has been an instant hit with critics and book bloggers. It tells the story of Mary, a girl living in a small village bordered by a fence to keep out the Unconsecrated -- savage zombies intent on destroying the town and everyone in it. Add a little bit of romance and a gutsy female heroin, and you've got a teen thriller to rival Twilight.

Rumor has it that an A-list actress is tipped to star in the movie (could it be Kristen Stewart?), and a first draft of the screenplay is being written as soon as possible.

My Thoughts...
I absolutely loved this book, and after reading it, I thought it would make a great movie. Now, I love Kristen Stewart. In Twilight. But if she ends up being cast as Mary, I feel as though I wouldn't enjoy it very much. But that doesn't mean I won't see it. Besides, it sounds like it is not set in stone quite yet. But I would sure love to see this on the big screen. It would be so creepy!

I'm excited that it's becoming a movie, but not so much on Kristin playing Mary. I've never been a big fan of her's.

Ahhh! I havn't read this one yet, But I definitly will very soon. I love books being turned into movies! And I agree when saying that Kristen Stewart probably wont be the best actress to play another book turned into a movie.

Kristin stewart doesn't exactly fit my image of mary. For some reason, she over-acts and it comes off as a bit fake. She's a cool person though! Now you just have to wait a year for the sequel. :-(
