Hey all you fantasy lovers out there. While nothing is officially OFFICIAL yet, Paramount Pictures is planning a film adaptation of Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.
And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.
Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.
When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?”
DoS&B is a planned trilogy, and Paramount is looking at the novel as a possible franchise. Taylor has confirmed she is working on the sequel, but no word yet on a working title or when it will be out.
Right now, I see Katy Perry playing Karou, mostly because she’s the only person I can legitimately picture with bright blue hair.
