Media Rights Capital has purchased the rights to Amanda Hocking's "Trylle" trilogy and will develop the supernatural tale into two films. The series, self-published by Hocking, consists of Switched, Torn and Ascend.
"Switch" centers on a teenage girl who discovers that she may not be human and finds herself in a world she never knew existed -- a world both beautiful and frightening in which she's unsure she wants to be a part of it.
DISTRICT 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell (right) has signed on to write both scripts, and she is also on board as a producer. The film will be distributed by Universal as part of their deal with Media Rights Capital.
