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.
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!
