The next young adult fantasy to be adapted- Daughter of Smoke and Bone

12.01.2011

HARRY POTTER, look what you hath wrought. It seems like every few months there's a new popular fantasy series being adaptated for a film, doesn't it? One that no one over the age of 14 has heard about. The latest is "Daughter of Smoke and Bone", a fantasy novel by Laini Taylor that's the first of a planned trilogy (of course it is).

Paramount's currently eyeballing it and apparently making an offer in the range of 700 grand, according to Deadline.

The synopsis-

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. 

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?

Two other studios have shown interest in the novel, especially since it has the potential for future installments. You know how much the studios love their fantasy franchises nowadays.

If the trailer resembles anything like John Carter, everyone is going to jump for joy, regardless of how badly it smells like garbage.

This looks and sounds like a piece of crap. If you're gonna go fantasy, how about Wheel of Time or RiftWars. Heck, I would even settle for R.A Salvatore's Drizt series.
